Bill Nelson, U.S. Senator and member of the Senate Commerce Committee, is urging the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) to take more widespread action to address defective airbags that affect million of vehicles, Bradenton Herald reported on October 21.
Reports said Senator Bill Nelson (D-Orlando) asked NHTSA’s David Friedman to push millions of people who owned vehicles with Takata airbags to have their vehicles immediately fixed. The senator is requesting a dedicated website be set up for easy access to recall information and for loaner cars to be made available during the time it takes to repair the vehicle. One person has already died from the airbag malfunction in Florida this month.
People’s lives are at risk when the airbags of their vehicles malfunction in an event of an accident.
