Car owners can’t take their cars for long drives anymore.
The government is finally going to fix that.
But, the answer is more than just making more cars.
A new report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the National Association of Manufacturers, The Car Ramps: An Industry Perspective, offers some suggestions for improving safety in the industry.
The report, released Thursday, details what the government can do to improve the safety of auto manufacturing, particularly in terms of cars that are on the road.
The industry has struggled with safety issues in recent years.
According to the National Automobile Dealers Association, accidents involving car crashes have nearly doubled over the past decade.
That’s despite automakers adding new safety features like air bags and anti-lock brakes.
But the problem goes beyond the cars themselves.
The car industry is plagued by manufacturing defects, the NHTSA found.
In some cases, the defects can be deadly.
The agency says the average number of deaths per billion miles driven in the U.S. was 4.2 in 2010.
In 2010, the number was 1.3.
But there’s also the issue of how the car is built.
According, a 2009 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research, car parts and parts suppliers accounted for only 1 percent of all manufacturing defects.
It’s no wonder that car companies have struggled to meet safety standards in recent decades.
In 2009, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which oversees car manufacturing, said the average cost per vehicle to repair was about $2,500.
But manufacturers are using a new technology to reduce costs.
It will be possible to build a car with a smaller, lighter body, lower emissions, and lower the cost of parts, according to the NTBSA.
The car can be made to take on the same weight and cost, the agency said.
In the case of safety issues, the report found, the best way to improve safety is to redesign the design of cars and get rid of unnecessary components.
The agency also wants manufacturers to increase safety inspections at all manufacturing sites.
And it recommends the automakers use more sophisticated computer-aided design (CAD) to reduce the risk of manufacturing defects in the production process.
The report also says the federal government should require automakers to install cameras and other devices that can detect defects in cars before they are made.
The cost of those upgrades could be worth it in the long run, according the report.
It’s a big change in the auto manufacturing industry, the U, the industry’s largest trade group, told The Hill in a statement.
“But for all of its benefits, the car industry has a long way to go in addressing safety issues.”
