The group wants the government to find out if there is any evidence that would be expected if a car had a safety system or a dashboard that allowed an emergency braking on a vehicle.
Now comes the big news as far as this isn’t just the government that takes these safety checks for granted. In September of 2004, John D. Podesta announced, “I will not tell my father to drive his car. He should make peace with the fact that he’s driving a car!” That same month the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sent a letter to Chrysler Corp. asking the company to provide a detailed list of specific safety issues related to vehicles on the assembly line for use in automotive production. Chrysler responded that the agency would “recommend the recall of all vehicles manufactured or offered through this authorized service line if a violation is discovered, and that the recall order must not only be completed but all other appropriate measures be taken.” Chrysler’s submission to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) involved a list of several safety issues with cars produced for the U.S. military. A large segment of the assembly line, including its passenger cars, was ordered to be replaced in 2011-12 and 2012-13. The Federal Communication Commission took the following view on the matter, calling “the Federal Government can and has acted to protect public safety and health,” in May this year. “[T]he Committee believes that the Department of Defense is committed to providing the information it has with regard to the safety implications of vehicles produced through a service line for use in the supply chain of military equipment, including vehicles, vehicles of all types, such as heavy equipment. The Committee has found, however, that, after consideration of the Government’s proposal, some questions remain.” The U.S. Department of Defense says in a blog post that it has been “working with federal officials and DOT to determine whether to proceed with an in-service recall of all U.S. military vehicles on the assembly line” as well as with Congress since 2004. In an attempt to quell concern in Congress, the DOT, after taking the DCCC survey, told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee it would “continue to engage with the DOT in the current legislative process.” The DOT maintains they are “confident in the decision that the Department of Defense will respond to this in a timely manner.” (Dot spokesperson J. Robert Boyd told the House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday that there was “no immediate process” to approve those actions.)
With no one to be found to have provided a complete, complete list of the safety issues with military vehicles, many are just left to guess where these issues actually lead. What are these issues, and do they affect all vehicles? A big part of the debate over what should be done is how to best protect the safety of military vehicles, given that both the military and civilian can determine what vehicles are safe when they make a call.
Many car manufacturers and some independent vehicle companies have put forward an excellent list of the issues they feel should be stopped or reduced in order to provide guidance for the companies themselves regarding what should remain in order to properly drive safely on their vehicles. Most of the safety problems listed, however, may not seem like it. This problem might have something to do with how some vehicles work with each other and how you manage the vehicles in the field. As mentioned, the DOT says military vehicles do have some performance issues the industry finds “sensitive” and some of these problems may even have the “same basic, unachievable, and often-occurring issues” as those of other vehicles in our market. Other problems include performance and safety issues that the military and civilian don’t have the “ideal” time to fully evaluate their cars. To better understand how these problems play into the decision to reduce or eliminate the vehicles, consider why automakers are the ones to blame. They are not automakers: The majority of the companies listed above actually make a large amount of money from sales of some of their vehicles and we can expect that they are probably making an even bigger effort if they keep getting a small percentage of the auto sales revenues that they make in the U.S. This is the point that these types of companies make. They get the support of a small portion of the public, and if the percentage they get is too small, the company will leave. All of this makes car makers more likely to go after those who make important components, so the fact that automakers like Ford (Ford), Chrysler, and some of the more recent automakers and some of the smaller and more specialized ones like Honda (Honda) have made significant profits, may allow them to justify a lot more of that revenue when they are forced out of their business if their cars aren’t equipped with the latest safety features and technology on which they are investing a lot of their profits.
The safety issue that’s leading is that of these manufacturers and all the automakers like a car manufacturer is that has just refused to acknowledge that the issue and continue to try
