The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has scheduled a listening session for July 18, 2013, in Washington, D.C. According to NHTSA, the meeting is the next phase of the agency’s effort to modernize the National Automotive Sampling System (NASS) and improve NHTSA’s crash database, which has not received “significant revision” since its creation in the 1970s. The listening session aims to solicit information and comments about what should be added, deleted or changed regarding the current NASS and recommendations for improving the data collection methodology. Pre-registration is required by July 11. See Federal Register, June 18, 2013.
