Auto safety pioneer criticizes stalled federal safety testing

Consumers in Ohio have depended on federal automotive safety ratings to guide their purchases since the 1990s. The federal five-star safety rating system arose in large part from the leadership of a safety advocate at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Her efforts alongside other automotive safety pioneers lead to the development of crash testing and crash-test dummies. Now, she works with Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, and she has published a report that is strongly critical of the federal government's apparent abdication of safety leadership.

Why is distracted driving a huge issue?

Driving takes a lot of concentration. When a driver is distracted by anything, they face the possibility of causing a serious wreck. While some people automatically associate cellphones with distracted driving crashes, there are many other things that can cause this problem.

Time change linked to more car crashes

Many Ohio residents look forward to the advent of Daylight Saving Time. Not only does the change mean that spring weather is on the way, people look forward to later evenings of sunlight after leaving work or school. However, some warn that the switch in the clocks is associated with a greater risk of severe or even fatal car crashes. By turning the clock ahead one hour, people may also lose out on an hour of sleep. While the time change is scheduled for a weekend in an attempt to affect the smallest number of people, there are many people who still keep to a strict schedule on Sunday morning.
