NHTSA is changing its rules to make it easier for whistleblowers to come forward

Still, even with those stated protections, speaking up against a company that may provide your livelihood isn’t easy. That’s why the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is taking new steps to make it easier for whistleblowers to come forward with information on vehicle safety defects, noncompliance with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and violations of the Vehicle Safety Act. Those new steps include launching a website detailing whistleblower status and protections, as well as how to submit complaints, the federal agency announced Monday.
