Automotive Safety-The Need to Know 781070

Optional safety features were made standard on American cars twelve years ago when the first highway and traffic safety bills were signed into law. All new cars, large and small and all price classes, were required to comply.
However, the consumer must be made aware of present safety standards. There is government influence to purchace small cars in order to conserve fuel; yet statistics show a three to one ratio of death or serious injury to occupants of small cars over those of large cars.
The consumer's choice of vehicle and equipment greatly affects his safety and the safety of his passengers.
