NHTSA or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is a part of the United States Department of Transportation.

How can an individual report defects in the power steering of a vehicle making it unsafe to drive?

He/she may also speak to a civil litigation attorney and submit any report that he/she may have from mechanics to prove his/her claim about the defect in the vehicle.

According to NHTSA, what is the minimum fine that an individual may have to pay if he/she exceeds the speed limit by 30 miles per hour?

Should the dealer of the vehicle repair malfunctions for free if the model of this vehicle has been recalled on many different occasions?

According to the NHTSA, if the model of the vehicle had been recalled because of safety issues on previous occasions, then the dealer can repair the vehicle free of cost. If the dealer refuses to repair the vehicle free of cost, the individual may contact the State Attorney General’s office for assistance.

  • BRP of Canada makes & sells their Can-Am Spyder three wheeled

    BRP of Canada makes & sells their Can-Am Spyder three wheeled trike motorcycle in the United States. It is well known by this vehicle's owners that this trike produces a large amount of heat which is directed at the drivers right side foot rest area making it an extremely hot area on said vehicle. Since this is also where the only method of braking the vehicle resides, I believe it is a safety hazard and have been trying ( Unsuccessfully ) to get the BRP Can-Am people to correct this before someone is permanently injured. They have declined my efforts and request for a fix to this issue in a letter I received.
