There Auto Be A Law

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 including self-driving cars, airbag propellants, vehicle weight and everything else car related.

Our guests stuck around for another episode. In this one Phil explains why “driving modes” make much more sense than SAE Levels and I have to agree. Levels are meaningless since every OEM seems to make them mean whatever they want. William explains more about liability and how the laws are not keeping up because there has not been a pressing issue from the public. Actually, the way he says is much better but you’re going to have to listen to find out.
