President Barack Obama has nominated Charles A. (Chuck) Hurley, the CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, as the next administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The nominee, who has headed MADD since 2005, previously held senior leadership positions with the National Safety Council and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Chuck Hurley has had a distinguished 30-year professional career and is a tremendous choice for this position. In addition to his work on drunk driving issues, he has worked extensively on airbag and seat belt issues, teen driving, and child passenger safety.
The nomination of a person to head up NHTSA with a history of working for safety – rather than against safety – is most refreshing. In my opinion, this will prove to be an outstanding selection to head up an extremely important regulatory agency. All Americans who believe safety should be a top priority for carmakers should applaud this move by the President.
