Mr. Brian O’Neill, President of the
- Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, who was kind enough
to send technical reports and also letters and Federal Register documents,
which were extremely useful for us to learn how opposition forces work
and how difficult our campaign would be.
George Rechnitzer, Senior Research Fellow at the Monash
University Accident Research Centre (Wellington Road, Clayton,
Victoria 3168, Australia), who sent us very basic and important technical
reports, as well as the excellent video film from the crash tests performed
by that university. Thanks to this very valuable contribution, UNICAMP
and all local automotive safety engineers now have a vast knowledge which
facilitates our own crash tests program.
Mr. John E. Tomassoni, Motor Vehicle
Safety Consultant (Phone: 001-410-641-8699 and Fax: 001-410-641-50970),
