auto products are needed to address safety and environmental issues
on the over 500 million vehicles that are on the road world wide.
Angeles, June 9, 2008 -- On August 8 2008, the Automobile
Safety Foundation will celebrate twenty years of auto
safety excellence, and its worldwide leadership in this work.
In the past, along with the backing of former President
Bill Clinton, ASF was a major factor
in influencing the automobile industry in replacing the hazardous
standard equipment 1969 steering lock, with safe and modern "Immobilizer"
auto theft prevention technology now in use on most American
automobiles. This new industry standard is being observed by foreign
automobile companies that are gradually making this important
remedial change as well. Additionally, ASF authored
warning and operation instructions about this dangerous steering
lock now being printed by national DMV throughout the country.
This is a first in automotive history!

issues that effect us all.
traffic, drivers can not merge onto a freeway or change lanes
safely with standard equipment side view mirrors due to the hazardous
blind spot on side view lane change mirrors Is there a ceiling
on rising gas prices? Either way, we best go back to the drawing
board and begin considering the alternatives due to the current
gasoline and environmental crisis. There are a wide range of choices
from the green vegetable alternative fuels, to electrics, as well
as new innovations- all great for the future, but who will help

are an estimated 500 plus million automobiles on the planet and
around 150 million cars in the United States. This does not include
trucks and other kinds of vehicles. The ASF states
there are over 500 Million vehicles that need safety, modernization
instance, check out this urgent news: ASF reports,
"In traffic, drivers can not merge onto a freeway or change
lanes safely with standard equipment side view mirrors due to
the hazardous blind spot on side view lane change mirrors".
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration
and U.S. Department of Transportation report
that blind spot mirror lane change accidents, such as side-swipes,
damage more than 826,000 vehicles and injure more than 160,000
people each and every year. Additionally, it should be noted that
these accidents are avoidable!
is good that Ford is releasing new mirror technology
--dubbed 'Blind Spot Monitoring System'.
BSMS will launch in early 2009 and will use radar to
track vehicles in the driver's blind spot. Ford's
system will alert drivers when another vehicle is in their blind
spot by sounding an audible warning and illuminating an indicator
in the vehicle's side view mirror. Ford has already
acknowledged the danger of blind spots by installing the split
level blind spot mirror on some trucks that are now on the road.
this will not help you and I much with the commute to work today,
or getting the kids safely to school. Progress and safety advancement
should be applauded, and considered a must win situation, but
since new automobiles only constitute a miniscule fraction of
the world's vehicles it can be argued that the effort for auto
safety and environment should focus on aftermarket products and
the instillation of these goods onto the remaining ninety-nine
percent of the vehicles on the road.

but as of yet, there is not a simple aftermarket alternative fuel
converter device kits, or scientists with a pill to chemically
alter the composition of gasoline so that it will generate five
hundred miles a gallon. So, what about the cars we now drive?
