Government Suggests Carmakers Talk To Doctors
from the berating-the-obvious? dept
I have to admit that the following report made me wonder about a few things. It’s the news that a government appointed group, the Intelligent Transportation Society of America, has suggested to automobile manufacturers that perhaps they should talk to doctors when designing their various emergency systems. So, my first response to this was, “well, duh!” Why, exactly, do we need a government appointed group to suggest what appears to be incredibly obvious? However, then, the second (vaguely horrifying) thought wave came along and said “you mean automakers don’t do this already?” Exactly what have carmakers been relying on in designing the emergency systems for their cars?
