"The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged that they had
funded a U.S. auto makers for the past five years.
The NTSB covertly funded a project whereby the auto makers were
installing black boxes in four wheel drive pick-up trucks in an effort
to determine, in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15
seconds before the crash.
They were surprised to find in 49 of the 50 states the last words of
drivers in 61.2% of fatal crashes were, "Oh, #$%$!"
Only the State of Texas was different, where 89.3% of the final words
were, "Hey, hold my beer""
guess gm needs black boxes for its truck line - "General Motors Co is recalling more than 69,000 full-size trucks and vans globally that could roll away after being parked due to a potential steering column defect, the automaker said on Friday."
Hyundai Motor Co. (005380) said in a statement that its sales rose 17 percent last month to 59,435. Combined with deliveries for affiliate Kia Motors Corp. (000270), South Korea’s two largest automakers increased sales 4.7 percent last month to 98,613. That was less than the 13 percent estimate for the Seoul-based companies that was the average of six estimates.
