The Center for Auto Safety Podcast

Our podcast discusses auto safety issues and technological developments, in hopes of providing consumers and enthusiasts with a better understanding of modern vehicles, safety systems, and current issues in the industry.

Every week listen to Executive Director Michael Brooks, Chief Engineer Fred Perkins and host Anthony Cimino as they discuss a range of auto safety issues.

NHTSA updates their new car assessment program to take pedestrians into account. Fred explains why simulations are not enough to make Autonomous Vehicles road worthy. Nearly half of all vehicle passengers killed on U.S. roads in 2021 were not wearing a seat belt. An update on the Hyundai/Kia/TikTok car theft problem. GM thinks a massive EV Escalade is a good idea. French Canadians are charging extra if your weighs too much (see: GM EV Escalade). AM radio is still a thing... that gives Fred nightmares. Plus Recall Roundup.
