The National Transportation Safety Board is not investigating most transportation accidents, making an exception only if officials believe lives or property are in danger.Auto recalls and investigations of safety defects have been put on hold during the partial government shutdown. The public can still file safety complaints through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website, but no one has been investigating them since the shutdown began over a week ago. Manufacturers can still voluntarily recall vehicles, but major recalls are typically negotiated between the government and automakers.
