    Book Burning Lives!



    We are doomed to repeat the ills of our past unless we strive to learn from them.

    Recently, I posted a thread with the sole purpose of informing GMI readers about the information publicly available from the NHTSA/NASA/National Academy of Science review of Sudden Unintended Acceleration.

    The topic was presented in an unbiased manner and did not reference any single vehicle manufacturer. The review site provides detailed presentations that contain an objective, scientific review of the SUA issue. It did not include political or other sectarian viewpoints.

    In short, it was truly a news article that GMI could be proud of, one intended to foment rational, knowledgeable discussion.

    That becomes a bit difficult though when the thread is deleted.

    Regardless of how or why this thread was deleted, we've lost a great opportunity for rational, enlightened discussion on a relevant automotive topic. There is not a single automobile manufacturer that doesn't suffer from some level of SUA complaints.

    As consumers that could be killed or maimed by a vehicle undergoing SUA, it is in our best interest to better understand SUA and push for any changes needed to reduce SUA accidents. Similarly, if SUA is being blown out of proportion, then an impartial, technically thorough review should put the matter to rest.

    The question I pose to GMI moderators and administrators is
    Why was this thread removed?

    Thanks,

    plane

    It will be enlightening to read the explanation/justification.

    I remember that thread. I remember moving it to Asian Competition Discussion. I don't know what happened to it. It's not in the place they move the non-compliant or duplicative threads to, so I don't have an answer. Sorry!

    You sure it wasn't merged into this thread?

    I had already posted some of the links in that thread.

    The purpose of this thread was to inform, without requiring someone to search through 127 posts.

    To make it easy for anyone seeking detailed SUA information.

    I did not save a copy offsite.

    It was something along the lines of Sudden Acceleration Review
    The review is being conducted by NHTSA, NAS and the National Academy of Sciences.

    It wouldn't be too tough for me to recreate it, but I wanted to check first to make sure no one had real heartburn over such an innocuous thread.

    That's when I began to suspect you know who......
    Startling, I know.
    Even funnier if he can muster the courage to respond.

    Perhaps this made in Oz photo will be the bait.....

    NHTSA - National Academy of Science SUA Review





    The National Highway Safety Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has provided an excellent resource center for the
    "Electronic Vehicle Controls and Unintended Acceleration Study".
    http://www.trb.org/Main/UAStudy.aspx

    Members of the public who would like to receive updates on milestones related to the project as well as a notice on the release of the committee's report should subscribe to TRB's weekly electronic newsletter.
    http://apps.trb.org/cmsfeed/enewslettersubscribe.asp

    A detailed introductory presentation is available.
    http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs...0DOTSlides.pdf

    A second meeting presentation titled "Industry Perspectives on UA and Electronic Controls" is particularly informative regarding electromagnetic interference with vehicle functions. Speaker notes for the presentaiton are also available.
    http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs...sburgerPPs.pdf
    http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs...rassburger.pdf

    Re: Book Burning Lives!

    It was an excellent and timely and helpful post.

    I know I was one of one or two to respond.

    Seems clear.

    Must of been an unintentional error of some sort and will be correctly rectified shortly, I'm sure.
