Alliance Statement on NHTSA Forum on Aviation Safety And Autos


“Following up to our proactive safety principles developed with NHTSA in January, automakers held several meetings with the commercial aviation community to learn about their safety policies and how they could potentially apply to the auto sector.  Friday’s safety forum was arranged to provide additional information about how the aviation sector worked to establish their system, which is worthy of continued discussion.  While there are differences between commercial aviation and the 259 million automobiles on U.S. roads, if there are new approaches that could work, we certainly want to explore them.”
