Are Guardrail Tests Coming up Short?

Testing of Trinity’s controversial guardrail system, known as the ET-Plus, continued last week. Despite the fact that the Federal Highway Administration is overseeing the tests, some, including two United States senators, feel that they should be more rigorous.

Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y. and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. wrote a letter to the Federal Highway Administration expressing their concern, stating that the agency “failed to answer many of the questions we have raised.”

Trinity maintains that its guardrail system is safe, while others disagree. Late last year, a federal whistle-blower case found Trinity guilty of defrauding the government by not making the Federal Highway Administration aware of a design change.

According to a Times Argus article,  the letter went on to add the following:

“It is critical that testing now underway use the most credible and up-to-date methodology.”

It is safe to assume that most people agree with the two senators, as this is a concern that needs to be addressed in the most accurate manner possible.
