|Campaigning for safer, cleaner motor vehicles|
SUVs are loophole vehicles across-the-board, but SUVs over 6,000 lbs. collect special exemptions like candy. These wasteful, dangerous vehicles are not held to some of the same crash safety standards as cars and buyers are given outrageously exorbitant tax breaks — creating incentives for manufacturers to churn out more of them while public safety suffers.
Special favors for large SUVs:
Side Impact Crash Protection
Roof Strength Protection
Above 8,500 lbs., SUVs are also exempt from:
Fuel Economy Standards
Child Restraint Anchorage Systems

But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
