The Hidden Benefits of Regulation: Disclosing the Auto Safety Payoff

By Joan Claybrook and David Bollier

Abstract

When Elizabeth P.\u27s Toyota station wagon skidded off an icy road one foggy winter night and slammed sideways into a tree, she never knew that Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 214 had saved her life. The standard, issued by the federal auto safety agency-the U.S. Department of Transportation\u27s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)-requires auto makers to build side door beams in cars, as specified in the dry technical language of Volume 49, Section 571.214 of the Code of Federal Regulation
