Sign This Petition: Enable NHTSA to Accept Crash Test Data from Foreign Nations So Cars Like the Audi RS 6 Can Be Imported

Here in the Fourtitude offices, we usually don't sign petitions short of lobbying to get Audi to bring over a car like the TT RS. However, we'll make an exception when it comes to going a step above and getting the American government to lower restrictions on private owners petitioning for importation eligibility. The big hurdle of course is always the crash test though our friend Syed Hoda has brought petition over on the White House website to our attention that could alleviate this. The idea would be to get NHTSA to approve cars that have passed crash worthiness tests for other markets like Europe.
So What's Our Take?
Seems like a winner for us. Granted, this seems to be a section of WhiteHouse.gov that allows citizens to post and then drive interest to petitions. In other words, we doubt there's any legislation behind this right now. Still, with enough interest there could be and that would be a very good thing because then we can order up our RS 6 as official grocery acquisition vehicle of this particular office.
Thanks Syed for the tip. Sign away after the jump (and spread it around).
