According to auto safety advocates, actual traffic safety is not a big priority in the current transportation bill making its way through Congress. In fact, it’s apparently so bad that Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is calling it “an atrocious assault on safety.” It’s also being described as a lobbyist’s fondest dream come true.
