The following are web sites I highly recommend that offer important safety information:
- National Road Safety Foundation The National Road Safety Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3)non-profit charitable organization dedicated to reducing accidents, death and disability on our nation’s highways by promoting safe driving habits through greater public awareness.
- SAFER Car.gov another excellent site for checking the safety of the vehicle you already own – or are looking to buy. How would your vehicle stand up to a collision? Check here!
- Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is an independent, nonprofit, scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries, and property damage — from crashes on the nation’s highways. Excellent web site!
- Stop Impaired Driving Despite the tireless efforts of thousands of advocates, impaired drivers continue to kill someone every 30 minutes, nearly 50 people a day, and almost 18,000 citizens a year. NHTSA and its partners are working together to put a stop to these deadly statistics.
- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA is responsible for reducing deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes. This is accomplished by setting and enforcing safety performance standards for motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment, and through grants to state and local governments to enable them to conduct effective local highway safety programs.
- MADD – Mother’s Against Drunk Driving – MADD launches a 24-Hour Live HelplineBeginning August 1st, 2005 – emotional support, guidance, and referrals are now available to victims/survivors of drunk driving, as well as friends and families, around the clock through a toll-free helpline.
