Says
“We’re now design­ing a test pro­gram to fig­ure out why they [the Fire­stone tires] failed. We’ll make sure peo­ple are updat­ed.” — NHTSA spokesman
“The rollover stan­dard has essen­tial­ly been hang­ing around since 1973, but [the new math­e­mat­i­cal mod­el that the auto indus­try objects to] is at least a step in the right direc­tion.” — Jack­ie Gillian of the Advo­cates for High­way & Auto Safe­ty
Some con­sumer advo­cates believe past con­gres­sion­al rela­tion­ships with auto indus­try will change
Rela­tion­ship between Con­gress & auto indus­try comes under pres­sure
