Byron Bloch | Fighting to Ensure Safer Vehicles

2013 International Conference
Chicago, IL
8.22.13

What are the biggest safety blunders in vehicle design? Taking on automakers’ bad designs and NHTSA's lethargy and minimal safety standards, Byron Bloch has fought for the adoption of safer designs that were feasible. In this talk, he shows graphic examples of rollovers with weak roofs that crush down, of truck underride decapitation tragedies and of unsafe fuel tanks that led to fiery deaths. Learn how he helped to "break the rules," and how an industrial designer helped influence the changes. You'll be savvier about car design from perspectives you never knew existed.
