NHTSA Awards Volvo for Traffic Safety
June 9, 2017—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced today that Volvo Cars will receive an award for its continued focus on safety, according to The Drive.
The NHTSA highway safety committee recognized the auto manufacturer's efforts by honoring Volvo's top safety experts for its contributions to the company's life-saving technology and vehicles that offer occupant protection and accident prevention.
The NHTSA said that Volvo is the leading company in automotive safety technologies, as it looks for the most cutting-edge safety systems and holds its cars to the highest standard of protection. To do this, Volvo needs the most adept safety consultants to help build cars that will keep its drivers in one piece and significantly decrease fatalities on the road.
The NHTSA has found these qualities in Magdalena Lindman and Per Lenhoff, both high-ranking members of the Volvo Cars Safety Centre. They developed many of the challenges in Volvo's rigorous safety testing program, analyzing countless real-life accidents and simulating them to prepare each new Volvo for any dangerous situation.
