The U.S. Department of Transportation has a large amount of (free) resources for consumers. One of their agencies, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has put together a consumer oriented website: has easy to find studies on

  • vehicles with 5 star crash ratings
  • tire safety information
  • vehicle recall information
  • air bag safety
  • Child Restraints
  • more…

There is also an extensive database of child restraint (child car seats) that have been recalled, and you can also enter your vehicle id number (VIN) to see if there have been any recalls on your vehicles. If you’re in the market for a vehicle, they also link to crash test reports and fuel efficiency reports.

If you’re considering a new (or used) vehicle, give a call for a fast, free quote to make sure you know what the rates will be on your new vehicle.
