Automatic emergency braking will become standard on nearly all new light-duty vehicles by 2022.
An industrywide agreement will bring the technology to new vehicles at least two years faster than a government mandate would have, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). A recent IIHS study revealed that automatic emergency braking can reduce rear-end crashes by as much as 40 percent, but currently fewer than 10 percent of new cars offer automatic emergency braking as standard. Last September it was announced that 10 different automakers had agreed to make the technology standard in their vehicles. The original group of automakers included Audi, BMW, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, Toyota and Volvo. The safety feature will be standard on nearly all new cars weighing 8,500 pounds or less by September 2022. From industrial chemicals and toxic waste to household detergents and air fresheners, hazardous materials are part of our everyday lives. Hazardous materials are substances which, because of their chemical, physical or biological nature, pose a potential risk to life, health or property if they are released. Federal laws enable local governments and interested citizens to become aware of possible hazardous material incidents and prepare for them.
Cable override messages will be activated for Monroe, River Raisin, and Bedford cable systems.
Ask your LEPC to find out precise information about where reportable quantities of extremely hazardous substances are stored and where they are used. Ask your LEPC or emergency management office about community plans for responding to a hazardous materials incident at a plant or other facility, or a transportation accident involving hazardous materials. Coordinate a neighborhood tour of any industries that manufacture and store hazardous materials.


If you are caught outside during an incident, try to stay upstream, uphill and upwind -- hazardous materials can quickly be transported by water and wind.
If requested to stay indoors or "in-place shelter", please follow all instructions from local officials. Avoid contact with any spilled liquid materials, airborne mist or condensed solid chemical deposits. If you need to stay indoors, fill the bathtub (sterilize it first) and large containers with water.
A person or item that has been exposed to a hazardous chemical may be contaminated and could contaminate other people or items.

The agreement was brokered by NHTSA and the Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), that also includes vehicles to be outfitted with forward collision warning along with automatic emergency braking.
Since then, NHTSA, IIHS and automakers have been working out the details of the commitment.


Since then, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia, Maserati, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche and Subaru have joined the pact. Some light-duty vehicles, like those equipped with manual transmissions, will get extra time to incorporate automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning.
Affecting urban, suburban and rural areas, hazardous materials incidents can range from a chemical spill on a highway to groundwater contamination by naturally occurring methane gas. Your local service station stores gasoline and diesel fuel, and hospitals store a range of radioactive and flammable materials. Many communities have a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) consisting of local planners, industry and members of the community that identifies industrial hazardous materials and keeps the community informed of the potential risk. Determine how close you are to freeways, railroads or factories which may produce or transport toxic waste. In general, try to go a least one-half mile (10 city blocks) from the danger area; for many incidents you will need to go much further.
Keep your body fully covered and wear gloves, socks and shoes, although these measures may offer minimal protection. Be prepared to turn off the main water intake valve in case authorities advise you to do so. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
