Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Headlight installed height on taller vehicles such as category 1 and 2 trucks (commonly called SUV, crossover, van, pickup truck, etc.) is of such a design that it commonly (perhaps unavoidably) ends up blinding drivers in passenger cars at lower heights by directing the 'hot spot' of headlight low beams directly into the eyes of passenger car drivers. In addition, bumper height on these same vehicles is not designed to meet bumpers on other vehicles, resulting in higher than necessary injury and fatality rates. Please have someone contact me to discuss ways to develop safer vehicle designs and regulations.
