Letter to Chairman Thune on the Status of Recommendations to NHTSA

Project ID: 

As requested by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, we assessed the status of 17 recommendations we made in June 2015 to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to improve Office of Defect Investigations (ODI) pre-investigation procedures. To date, we have closed 12 recommendations and continue to work with NHTSA to close the 5 remaining open recommendations, which involve improvements to early warning reporting data and NHTSA’s consumer complaint process.  We are committed to continue working with the Agency as appropriate in determining whether or when all actions are complete.
