  • Who would do this?
  • • The Ford Pinto was invented in the late 1960‘s. "The Pinto was not to weigh an ounce over 2,000 pounds and not cost a cent over $2,000."
  • • During design and production, however, crash tests revealed a serious defect in the gas tank. In crashes over 25 miles per hour, the gas tank always ruptured. To correct it would have required changing and strengthening the design.
  • • That is, if the car crashed going faster than 50km per hour (in Australia, that’s the speed limit in suburban areas, you were guarenteed (100% of the time) to have the tank rupture
  • • If you were travelling over 50 miles per hour (ie, on the motorway) and crashed, a manufacturing fault would see a pretty good chance of having all the doors jam shut while the gas tank ruptures
  • • Essentially, you would be trapped inside a burning car if you crashed on the motorway....any crash.
  • "Safety doesnt sell." Lido Anthony "Lee" Iacocca Ford engineer
  • • Ford argued that it was cheaper to not recall the product.
  • • The total cost at the time was $11 per car.
  • • Ford calculated that if 180 people died, and 180 people had serious burn injuries, the cost of payouts in court would be about $49 million dollars
  • • The cost of the recall was $137 million dollars (at $11 per car)
  • • They decided NOT to recall the product
  • • Was this decision right?• Who gets to decide the value of a human life?
