Stricter Fuel Standards May Cause More Auto Accidents

Stricter Fuel Standards May Cause More Auto Accidents

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Car Accident Lawyer. Cars getting better gas mileage is more of a curse rather than a blessing, according to the Trump Administration. They argue that better gas mileage would result in more people on the road, therefore, they would be exposed to higher levels of risk. This argument is meant to justify freezing Obama-era toughening of fuel standards. Transportation experts debate these claims, which were contained in a proposal draft prepared by the administration this summer. Additionally, draft excerpts obtained by the Associated Press reveal the administration’s plan to dispute California’s long-running authority to enact its own, stricter fuel and pollution standards. Revisions for the mileage requirements from 2021 – 2026 are still a work in progress, according to the administration, and changes might be made prior to the proposal’s public release. It’s possible that the release may happen as soon as this week.
