Group Description

This group is dedicated to passage of the DriveSmartAmerica! Act. This legislation would MANDATE, at a minimum, the installation of miles per gallon (MPG) gauges in a prominent position on the instrument panel on all new cars, trucks, and buses sold in the United States beginning in a certain model year (2012?). The information needed for such a display is already generated by onboard computers and such devices are already available in the after-sales market. The only step needed is to integrate them with new vehicle instrument design. If you replace the tachometer (useless for cars with automatic transmissions), the added cost per vehicle would be very small, if anything. While not THE answer to our dangerous dependency on fossil fuels, such devices would provide FEEDBACK to drivers so that they could adjust their driving habits to maximize fuel efficiency. Besides improved gas mileage, additional benefits would include reduced pollution and safer streets and highways due to lower speeds. What's not to like? (Peter S. Gadzinski)
