WASHINGTON—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has scheduled a workshop April 28 to discuss options to improve vehicle safety recall completion rates, the agency announced.
NHTSA is undertaking the workshop in response to a record number of vehicle recalls in 2014, the agency said. A total of 803 vehicle recalls involving 63.9 million vehicles made 2014 the worst year for recalls in three decades, it said.
The workshop will be held in the Media Center of the U.S. Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE in Washington, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., NHTSA said. The informal workshop will concentrate on public education, customer and dealership outreach, parts production challenges and recall repair rates, it said.
All attendees must register for the workshop no later than April 21, and walk-ins will not be allowed, NHTSA said. For more information on the workshop, go here.
