Improving Highway and Vehicle Safety: Reauthorization of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Insurance of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, United States Senate, One Hundred and Twelfth Congress, First Session, July 27, 2011   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the opening statement of Mark Pryor: "In 2009, more than 5,400 people died, and about half a million were hurt in crashes involving a distracted or inattentive driver. This bill will also strengthen programs designed to stop dangerous driving behavior and step up vehicle safety so that families are protected by strong safety standards and devices when an accident does occur. Other provisions in the bill would update and consolidate highway safety programs, address emerging electronics and technologies in vehicles, prioritize transparency and accountability with vehicle investigations, and improve child safety." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David L. Strickland, Susan Fleming, Jacqueline S. Gillan, Nicole Mason, Robert Strassburger, Vernon Betkey, John Thune, Mark Pryor, Patrick Toomey, Tom Udall, Roy Blunt, Amy Klobuchar, Claire McCaskill, Roger F. Wicker, the Hertz Corporation, Jan Withers, and the American Car Rental Association.
