This is the website of the Motor Vehicle Hazard Archives Project (MVHAP). Begun in 2003 under a grant from the Santos Family Foundation, the Project provides (1) useful immediate information to consumers about vehicle safety and (2) access to a growing volume of historical materials documenting the progress of motor vehicle hazard control since the mid-twentieth century. The Archive Projectís document and film materials are being organized into thematic collections. Content lists and excerpts from these are posted on this website as they become available.
Services offered on this website, found by clicking on the appropriate tabs above, are as follows:
