The Government's Role in Automotive Quality 750031
Motor vehicle accidents resulting in injuries and deaths are caused by a variety of reasons. Quality control problems, resulting in vehicle defects, contribute to these accidents. Reduction in motor vehicle accidents is worthwhile. The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 through the Office of Defects Investigation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, provides a means of administering the manufacturers' and government's corrective action for those potential accidents caused by vehicle defects.
