Crashworthiness

This Crashworthiness Resource has been created as a resource tool for consumers with the intentions of alerting and educating people of the numerous auto defects proliferated by major car manufacturers. Each year, numerous recalls are issued because auto safety has been sacrificed. Often times, auto recalls are not announced until serious accidents and fatalities have occurred.

As of January 9, 2002 the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) agreed to develop a new investigative procedure on initiating auto defect recalls. This decision follows reports showing the NHTSA lacking consistent procedures regarding companies' decisions. It has resulted in having a decreased effectiveness toward initiating recalls.
