Ben over at Petrolisti has started a new White House Petition to remove the ban on the importation of foreign cars to America. In his article, he mentions how difficult it currently is, from the amount of money and resources truly needed to even come close. Ben has a lot to say about the benefits of importing foreign cars to the States, including some safety reasons:
There is no rational reason we couldn’t give approval to European certified cars. German TUV approvals are tougher than our own, and include rear collision and rollover standards we don’t perform. In fact, a global standard for safety and crash testing would make a lot of sense, and save the manufacturers time and money.
So yeah…help the cause! Sign the petition!!
