NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) is an organization under the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Its mission is to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce economic costs due to road traffic crashes. NHTSA carries out this mission through education, research, safety standards, and enforcement activity.
NHTSA offers a collection of APIs that give developers programmatic access to their safety information. This includes the locations of child safety seat inspection stations, Civil Penalty Payments collected by NHTSA, complaints submitted to the NHTSA, recall information, and vehicle crash-worthiness and rollover safety data.
