Subject: Tell Congress: Public safety before Toyota profits

David,

Auto safety has been a cornerstone of Public Citizen's work since our founding nearly four decades ago, and we're counting on Public Citizen activists and supporters like you to help pass a critical public safety bill.

Contact your members of Congress right now and tell them to pass the Motor Vehicle Safety Act to protect consumers from serious defects like those that caused Toyota's runaway vehicles.

The American people deserve to know that when they buy a new car, there are no safety defects that put their families at risk.

The American people deserve to know that government regulators are working for them, not for the auto industry.

The American people deserve to know that automakers that put corporate profits ahead of public safety will be punished with strong penalties.

Tell your Representative and Senators to pass the Motor Vehicle Safety Act before Congress adjourns in December.

Take action now at www.citizen.org/motor-vehicle-safety-act.

At least 98 people died, thousands of consumer complaints were ignored, and millions of Toyota owners were at risk because of serious safety defects that caused their vehicles to accelerate suddenly and unexpectedly.

Automakers, auto dealers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are working hard to kill this bill. They don't like it because it will protect you and your family from corporate shenanigans and punish corporate misbehavior.

Tell your Senators that you want tougher penalties for automakers that try to hide dangerous safety defects. Tell your Representative that you want an end to cozy meetings and secret emails between auto executives and government regulators scheming to cover up problems.

Don't let corporate interests drive the safety agenda. Get in the driver's seat!

Call and/or email your members of Congress today and tell them to pass the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

Thank you for taking action.

Robert Weissman, President

P.S. Please forward this email to anyone you know who wants to make sure that automakers—and our government regulators—are not risking our safety for their profits.
