The safety of vehicles, heavy equipment and machinery, children’s toys and other general consumer products are all regulated by our government. For instance, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is an agency of the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government that is responsible for writing and enforcing Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) is another federal agency that implements the same standards and regulations for general consumer products. These agencies often release recalls, frequently on a daily basis, designed to keep the public informed about the safety of the products they own.
