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.

On Sunday, March 16, 2014, at approximately 12:50pm, northbound traffic on lake shore drive was brought to a halt by four police vehicles that spread across the four northbound lanes. The police vehicles were parked, one in each lane. The officers had created a road block. My car was in the far East lane immediately behind a parked police vehicle. I placed my vehicle in park, but kept the engine running. Minutes later, a black Chrysler sedan driving at a high speed (estimated at 55-100mph per police reports) was being pursued by the police in a high speed chase. The black Chrysler approached my stationary vehicle from the rear with no signs of slowing down. I told my family we were about to be hit and soon after we felt the impacts first from the black sedan hitting us from behind and then from the front when my car was pushed into the parked police vehicle ahead of us. My head hit the steering wheel causing an abrasion and bleeding. None of the airbags deployed despite a high speed impact from the rear and a secondary impact in the front.
