    Obama's NHTSA chief

    Chuck Hurley former president of the IIHS and MADD is Obama's appointee for the head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Look for more DUI laws and attempts to install speed cameras everywhere. The next four years looks to be fun.

    The question is.... will we survive them? I almost don't want to know.

    First rate people hire first rate people.

    Second rate people hire third rate people.

    I had a pretty low opinion of Obama. It is far worse than I expected. I have written my senators and plan to contact them. (Not that that will do much good..)

    We have been asleep for too long. This is going to be truly awful.

    I am getting ready to buy my tricplate. www.tricplate.com

    Got one already.

    What I fear most, though, is that we are going to get mandatory "pay as you drive" in-car GPS transponders. Old cars that can't be retrofitted will be outlawed.
