I heard that the new administration is going to require new standards for automobiles as part of their bailout package to American car manufacturers, i.e. the big three.
If existing standards have been in place since the 1970’s then how come I still find myself driving behind trucks, buses and diesel equipment, that still stink and produce fumes? If the current standards haven’t been implemented, in many instances, why would we need more?
Why are car owners the first to get hit with the bill? Extra manufacturing costs always get passed down to the consumer.
Shouldn’t they be focusing on better gas mileage?
