Safety is Not a Luxury!
Advanced safety features should be standard

The auto industry has a history of resisting standard safety features in their vehicles — everything from seat belts to air bags were at one time opposed by automakers. Now, they’re at it again.

Advanced safety features exist right now that can save thousands of lives annually, but the auto industry isn’t following Consumer Reports’ recommendation that they be made standard in all vehicles. Instead, automakers are charging hundreds to thousands of dollars extra for them, or are including them only in luxury vehicles or as a part of premium packages.

But your company’s failure to make standard in all of your vehicles advanced auto safety features like highway-speed automatic emergency braking and blind spot warning puts profit ahead of people’s lives. As consumers of your products, we are calling on your company to make standard these advanced safety features in all your vehicles, and stop charging hundreds to thousands of dollars extra for them.
