Automobile Safety Foundation


Mission Statement


The Automobile Safety Foundation (ASF) is an independent non-profit organization that researches and develops ways to improve automobile safety while addressing public driving awareness, and auto safety issues. ASF does not serve any other companies or organizations, and is entirely independent. 

The spring loaded steering lock, in production since 1969, is a hazardous and obsolete auto theft device that causes steering lockup accidents, while aiding auto theft! ASF was founded in 1988 with the mission to warn, and educate about this hazardous device, in an effort to abolish steering lock production.There have been many ignition switch recalls and there will be many more! 

Today drivers have a choice when buying automobiles. More and more vehicles are now available with safe and modern theft prevention technology  called, Immobilizer, that  replaces the ignition switch steering lock At the turn of the century all vehicles sold in Europe, Canada, and Australia were required by law to be  Immobilizer  equipped, and most American cars now have Immobilizer systems  as standard equipment!  

ASF liberates the automobile! Mission accomplished!

With the turn of the century, ASF broadened the scope of its auto safety mission to include important safety research about driver distraction, introducing the ASF Gift Card road concentration alert and and the Copilot Driver License program. 

The new ASF mission: Broadcast the life saving information at: www.carsafe.org worldwide!
