New York City Truck Attack Brings Deadly Terrorist Trend to the U.S.
NBC News quoted Erroll Southers of the USC Price School about whether the recent vehicular terror attack in New York City will have any long-term impacts on vehicle rental screenings.
While authorities might increase vigilance on vehicle rentals in the near future, it was difficult to assess any long-term policy changes that could arise from Tuesday’s attack, said Erroll G. Southers, a professor of the Practice of Governance at the University of Southern California.
“We may see more vigilance on the part of people who rent vehicles,” he said. “There might be some more screening. But again it’s difficult to stop transactions.”
