“As the winds of change sweep the nation and Washington, D.C., with promises for new policies to help the public, it is a good time for me to move on to other adventures,” said Claybrook, who was president of Public Citizen for the past 27 years after serving as NHTSA administrator during the Carter Administration.

In addition to fighting the auto and trucking industries on safety issues, Claybrook has been involved in numerous tire issues, from the Firestone 500 recall of the early 1970s to the Ford-Firestone tire issues in 2000, and was involved in the development of TREAD Act regulations.
