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.

This is not a complaint based on a specific occurrence. I am a professional driver who operates a variety of passenger vans and busses between various cities. In recent years it has become increasingly more difficult to drive during non-daylight hours do to the type of headlights that are now allowed on passenger and truck vehicles. The intensity and brightness level of headlights has increased to a point where the glare and blinding effect of oncoming headlights has become a significant safety factor, especially on two lane highways. Furthermore, many vehicles are now equipped with a four headlight system as their regular night time running lights. The optional "fog lights" for severe weather conditions is now standard lighting protocol. The other option on these vehicles is their "bright" option which creates an even more hazardous situation for oncoming traffic due to their blinding effect. This "upgraded" headlight, fog light, and bright light trend needs to be toned back down to intensity and brightness levels that existed a few years ago and are reasonable for oncoming traffic to adjust to. It is a simple matter of fact that these high level headlight options are the cause of more unnecessary accidents and casualties than ever before.
