(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Confirming what many Americans have said for years, a top government official within the administration of President Joe Biden is warning that many electric vehicles are unsafe.
According to “U.S. Official Airs Safety Concerns over Heavy Electric Vehicles,” published by Breitbart News:
“The safety risks posed by heavy electric vehicles in any collision with lighter vehicles has pushed the head of the National Transportation Safety Board to issue a general warning to all road users.
“The official, Jennifer Homendy, raised the issue in a speech in Washington to the Transportation Research Board. AP reports she pointed, by way of example, to an electric GMC Hummer that weighs about 9,000 pounds with a battery pack that alone is 2,900 pounds — roughly the entire weight of a typical Honda Civic.” [emphasis added]
During her speech, Homendy stated:
“I’m concerned about the increased risk of severe injury and death for all road users from heavier curb weights and increasing size, power, and performance of vehicles on our roads, including electric vehicles…We have to be careful that we aren’t also creating unintended consequences: More death on our roads. Safety, especially when it comes to new transportation policies and new technologies, cannot be overlooked.”
Homendy went on to note that electric vehicles are almost always significantly heavier than their gasoline-powered equivalents.
