How the NHTSA is responding to Takata's unresponsiveness

As our readers may or may not be aware, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is currently embroiled in a standoff with Japanese auto supplier Tanaka.

After an accident, consider taking these urgent steps

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you are likely feeling at least somewhat disoriented. Although human senses can become particularly acute in the immediate aftermath of car wrecks and other accidents, they do not stay this way for long. The need to mentally, emotionally and even visually process a motor vehicle wreck can leave accident victims feeling like they aren't sure how to react and at what speed.
