NHTSA Shuts Down Web Access To Complaint Database Documents
June 4th, 2010 5:06 PM Share
Within the last several hours, NHTSA has blocked access to documents hosted on its Office of Defect Investigation complaint database. The move comes after TTAC commenter carquestions posted this video to YouTube, showing a number of lapses in redacting which resulted in private information, including social security numbers and driver’s license numbers, being made publicly available. TTAC has contacted NHTSA about the apparent violation of the Privacy Act of 1974, and is awaiting a response from the agency.

So what do you think...was the jack ass responsible for this goof busy drinking coffee with friends, or taking a 3 hour lunch? Do you think this govt employee makes more than $100k? Maybe more than $110k?
