According to the World Health Organization (WHO), motor vehicle crashes throughout the world have killed 1.8 million people in 2002. Millions of other sustain injuries, some with suffering permanent disabilities. This book cuts through over thirty years of political wrangling and institutional biases to provide an argument for the Motor Vehicle Event Data recorder (MVEDR), the automotive equivalent of an airplane's flight recorder, commonly known as a black box. The book will explore the automotive industry and the government highway safety establishments to create an understanding of the politics and the position on all sides of this safety debate. The book presents each argument and uncovers the agendas and mandates of the stakeholders.
