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.

Hit a cow on a county road at approx. 55 mph after coming around a curve. No time for any evasive maneuvers. Vehicle went airborne and landed approx. 40 feet from initial impact. Air bags did not deploy. Driver's chest impacted the steering wheel causing hairline fractures to the sternum and a dislocation of the left shoulder and severe bruising of the stomach and hips where the seatbelt was. Driver was airlifted due to injuries. Driver's service dog's seat belt disengaged and was thrown to the back of the vehicle and suffered minor internal injuries and was taken for treatment
