NHTSA's "Auto Safety Hotline" isn't just for autos -- it's for all vehicles. That's the message Larry Long is trying to get out to the trucking industry. Long was added to NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigations earlier this year when truck safety started becoming a big issue in Congress. It's his job to educate truckers about NHTSA - and to educate NHTSA about the trucking industry.
Last year, out of 20,000 call-ins to the agency for safety-related complaints, only seven were Class 8 trucks. The agency is trying to change that.
