Tampa Automobile Accident Attorneys Provide Insight into the Workings of the NHTSA
The automobile accident attorneys at Clark & Martino, P.A., in Tampa recognize that in the absence of a governmental body like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), America’s roadway system would be a much, much less safer place. Part of the Department of Transportation, the NHTSA is a U.S. federal agency that is tasked with creating and enforcing safety guidelines for vehicles, and with regulating vehicle fuel economy. The many strides that have been made in traffic and vehicular safety over the course of the last several decades are attributable, in large part, to the work of the NHTSA. According to its Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) database, the number of crashes resulting in the death of at least one occupant has fallen markedly in recent years, despite an overall rise in vehicle miles travelled (VMT).
As automobile accident attorneys, we see first-hand the toll auto accidents can take, and applaud the NHTSA in its effort to make our roadways safer and more enjoyable to use. Unfortunately, auto accidents will continue to plague our roads, and it is services provided by law firms like ours that help ensure accident victims get the medical care and financial compensation they need.
