In recent months, a number of states across America have made it easier for law-enforcement officers to meet the standards necessary to search a motorist's car without a warrant during a traffic stop. Massachusetts is headed in the opposite direction.
In order to run an organization dedicated to highway safety, it should probably be a foregone conclusion that a prospective candidate should have a good driving record.
In this case, NADA certainly doesn't mean "nothing."
On the surface, it seemed like Jill Colter had a slam-dunk case against a Nissan dealership she had accused of firing her because she had stage 4 cancer.

Legislators in Massachusetts are set to introduce a bill in October that will ban modified exhausts in the land of a certain tea party and the world's best baked beans. The pious patriots over at SEMA have been fighting this day for years, but the politicians have decided they've had enough with the Flowmasters, already.
