NHTSA setting new safety standard for car roofs

Consumer safety advocates say a new National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regulation regarding automotive roof strength doesn’t do enough to keep occupants from being crushed when a vehicle rolls over. The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers has said it “supports NHTSA’s goal of enhancing rollover safety, but enhanced roof strength is only one part of that plan,” along with safer driving to prevent rollovers in the first place.
