Comments to the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Competition, Foreign Commerce, and Infrastructure Re: “The TREAD Act Revisited”

The TREAD Act included a number of important safety measures that have benefited consumers, but we want to focus here on a vitally important provision in TREAD requiring NHTSA⎯after years of failing to address the rollover problem⎯to develop and conduct dynamic driving tests it had developed to measure vehicle rollover resistance and report those findings to consumers.
