Tell Automakers: Fix front-end blind zones!

Pickup trucks and SUVs dominate our roadways. And as these vehicles grow in popularity and size, so does the risk to people around them – when drivers unknowingly hit people directly in front of them because of blindzones just past the hood.

The auto industry has the ability to tackle this glaring problem with lower hood heights and technology like pedestrian detection or cameras. But in the majority of pickups and SUVs, they haven’t!

Join with us in signing this petition from our friends at Consumer Reports calling on automakers to make safety their top priority and fix front-end blindzones now.

There are 17 children in front of the SUV pictured above and the driver could not see a single one of them.
