New Jersey Congressman Josh Gottheimer is intensifying his campaign to ensure the inclusion of AM radio in electric vehicles (EVs). At a Tesla dealership in Paramus, Gottheimer passionately addressed the critical role of AM radio in emergency communication and urged the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to take action.
The move comes in response to the increasing trend of EV manufacturers, particularly Tesla, omitting AM radio from their vehicles. Gottheimer argues that this omission poses a safety risk, especially in emergencies where alternative communication channels may be compromised. He emphasized the historical significance of AM radio during major disasters. . .
