For decades, Clarence Ditlow fought automakers in courts, in Congress, and in the press.
As the formal leader for the nonprofit Center for Auto Safety and the spiritual leader of all who wanted to make cars safe, his work saved thousands of lives. Clarence battled automakers and regulators constantly, effectively, and indefatigably. Though confronted daily by the callous attitudes of most automakers and many regulators, Clarence never allowed disgust to give way to despair. Clarence ignored opportunities for personal glory and fortune. He seems never to have considered them. He worked at his cause. He thought it was right-and that, apparently, was the end of the matter. Today I will attend Clarence's memorial service in Washington DC, the scene of most of his great battles. Tomorrow, as the last board member that Clarence appointed to the Center for Auto Safety, I will attend the first board meeting that we have held since his passing. Our task, and the task of all consumer advocates, will be to avoid the temptation to spend our time lionizing Clarence-which he would have derided as useless. We must instead do as he always did: buckle down and get to work.

Clarence M. Ditlow III, long-time auto safety advocate, dies
Clarence M. Ditlow III, the executive director of the Center for Auto Safety whose work over four decades forced the auto industry to make important safety and consumer improvements, including installing air bags, has died. Ditlow died at George Washington University Hospital on Thursday of colon cancer, the center said. He was 72. Ditlow joined the center, founded by consumer advocate Ralph Nader, in the early 1970s. Ditlow also played major roles in dozens of safety recalls, from 1.5 million Ford Pintos with exploding gas tanks in the late 1970s to Fiat Chrysler jeeps with a similar problem more recently. One of his most important and hard-fought battles was to get air bags installed in every car, which the center finally won in 1994 after taking its case against the Reagan administration to court a decade earlier.
