ASA, ASA-Midwest and AASP-MO co-hosted the Second Annual Vehicle Safety Inspection. The event was held at Hunter Engineering’s Bridgeton facility. Attendees heard presentations from a number of safety experts. Representatives from government agencies discussed their activities, from bureaucratic issues to accident reconstruction. Concerns ranged from lack of data comparing states with safety inspections to those without inspections, to systems on newer cars that are not part of the inspections. Two panels were presented. The first panel was peopled by government representatives. The second was represented by members of the automotive service industry, chaired by ASA Chairman Donny Seyfer. For those unable to attend a video recording will be available Next year the Safety Forum will be held in Texas.
