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.

Vehicles with extremely bright headlights cause a danger to other drivers. I am not talking about drivers with their high beams on, I'm referring to regular headlights that are unusually bright. I was almost in an accident on the 405 freeway last night because a driver behind me with bright headlights blinded me and I veered into the next lane because we were on a curve and I couldn't see well enough to stay in my lane. I have heard many of my friends compalin about cars with bright headlights almost causing accidents for them because the light can be blinding, similar to a flash bulb on a camera going off in your face in a dark room. These bright lights should not be legal for regular driving use, they should be used only in the same conditions that high beams are used.
