My longtime friend, Joan Claybrook, former head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, has been a dedicated consumer advocate for years. Calling NHTSA a “lapdog, not a watchdog,” Joan believes the agency must adopt “tougher standards” for safety officials who leave and go to work for the auto industry. Joan testified at a hearing of the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection examining NHTSA operations.
Joan has found 40 cases of former NHTSA and Department of Transportation officials who went to work for the auto industry. Among the 40 are Sue Bailey, a former NHTSA administrator, who went to work for Ford Motor Co., and Rodney Slater, a former Secretary of Transportation, who was recently asked by Toyota to head up a special quality advisory board. While ties between NHTSA and Toyota are currently under scrutiny because of alleged safety defects in Toyota vehicles, the 40 cases mentioned by Joan also involved all three major U.S. manufacturers, BMW, Honda and Suzuki, as well as auto trade associations.
