August 29, 1996:

ASF is in receipt of a letter from the United Nations International Center in Vienna dated August 12, 1996, that states, "...thank you for the valuable and interesting material you have sent us...We are grateful for you sharing this important information on anti-theft devices with the Division. We are particularly pleased to read that your foundation has been carrying out extensive work to sensitize the public opinion on this most relevant issue in connection with the risks attached to steering locks..."

In other news, the NHTSA continues to illegally circumvent the ASF Petitions that address the auto theft crisis, as well as continuing to censor this urgent safety information from the NHTSA web site.
