The Agencies have also received a letter opposing any extension of the comment period.
Continued high levels of motorcycle related fatalities, the ongoing use of novelty helmets by motorcyclists and the poor performance of these helmets in tests and crashes have prompted the agency to clarify the status of such helmets under federal law to ensure that all relevant legal requirements fmvsss readily enforceable. The moving contoured barrier crash test conditions are those specified in S7. This document denies a petition for rulemaking submitted by Mr. Additionally, this final rule increases a manufacturer’s design flexibility while providing opportunity to decrease cost without compromising safety.
By initiating rulemaking to consider enhancing related safety standards, this notice grants the part of the petition for rulemaking submitted by Ms. Thompson has not identified a safety need to justify making changes he requested, and Mr.
NHTSA believes that V2V capability will not fjvss absent regulation, because there would not be any immediate safety benefits for consumers who are early adopters of V2V. This standard specifies requirements for the integrity of motor vehicle fuel systems using compressed natural gas CNGincluding the CNG fuel systems of bi-fuel, dedicated, and dual fuel CNG vehicles. Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than November 13, The comment period for the RFC was originally scheduled to rmvss on March 5, Prevost petitioned to revise the seat belt anchorage strength requirements for last row seats having no passenger seating behind them.
The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the rule is approved by fmvs Director of the Federal Register as of August 24, V2V begins to provide safety benefits only if a significant number of vehicles in the fleet are equipped with it and if there is a means to ensure secure and reliable communication between vehicles.
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) Guide
When the vehicle traveling longitudinally forward at any speed up to and including 30 mph impacts a fixed collision barrier that is perpendicular to 3003 line of travel of the vehicle, or at any angle up to 30 degrees in either direction from the perpendicular to the line of travel of the vehicle, with 50th percentile test dummies as specified in part of this chapter at each front outboard designated seating position and at any other position whose protection system is required to be tested by a dummy under the provisions gmvss Standard No.
Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than December 14, Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than March 24, A flame is applied to a polymer sample for each of the UL 94 tests; specimens are then observed for the extent and rate of fire propagation. Full compliance is required on September 1, Global Automakers petitioned the agency for reconsideration, seeking to correct what it believes is an error in formula for determining the number of designated seating positions in longer seating positions.
The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the proposed rule is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of May 22, fmvsss In all cases, the Agency’s goal would be to ensure the maintenance of currently required levels of safety performance. A particular vehicle need not meet further requirements after having been subjected to a single barrier crash test.
United States Code U. The agency believes that requiring V2V communication capability in new light vehicles would facilitate the development and introduction of a number of advanced vehicle safety applications.
The impactor and impact speed would simulate the loading from an average size unrestrained adult male impacting a window on the opposite side of a large bus in a rollover. Summary This document grants the petition for rulemaking submitted by the Truck Safety Coalition, the Center for Auto Safety, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, and Road Safe America on February 19,to establish a safety standard to require automatic forward collision avoidance and mitigation systems on certain heavy vehicles.
To ensure that all interested parties have a sufficient amount of time to fully develop their comments, the Agencies are extending the deadline for the submission of written comments on the proposal, including comments on the Preliminary Regulatory Impact Analysis and Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis and Draft Environmental Assessment accompanying the proposal, by 30 days.
Furthermore, if any electric shutoff valve prevents sensing of system pressure by the pressure transducer when closed, it must be open for both the initial pressure measurement and the pressure measurement 60 minutes after the vehicle ceases motion from impact. NHTSA also seeks comments on the research that would be needed to determine how to amend the FMVSS in order to remove such barriers, while retaining those existing safety requirements that will be needed and appropriate for those vehicles.
Summary This NPRM proposes to upgrade the Federal motor vehicle safety standards that address rear underride protection in crashes into trailers and semitrailers. You should submit comments early enough to ensure that Docket Management receives them not later than July 30, Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than February 1, The petitioner claims that the recommended changes to the relevant safety standards would allow vehicle manufacturers to better utilize the regenerator technology to increase vehicle efficiency.
More limitations on accuracy are described at the GPO site.

The compliance date for the amendments in this final rule is September 27, NHTSA is issuing this NPRM to propose a new Federal motor vehicle safety standard to enhance 30 rollover structural integrity of certain types of large buses generally, over-the-road buses of any weight and non-over-the-road buses with a gross vehicle weight rating GVWR greater fmbss 11, kilograms kg 26, pounds lb. NHTSA and FMCSA have received requests to extend the comment period for their proposal that would require vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 11, These amendments will restore the side marker photometry requirements for motor vehicles under thirty feet in length that were in place prior to the final rule that reorganized the standard.
Today’s ANPRM requests comment on NHTSA’s estimated cost and benefits of requirements for underride guards on single unit trucks, and for retroreflective material on the rear and sides of the vehicles to improve the conspicuity of the vehicles to other motorists. NHTSA will determine whether mfvss issue a rule in the course of the rulemaking proceeding, in accordance with statutory criteria. NHTSA is denying this petition primarily because the requested force level reduction may set strength levels below an acceptable level for a dynamic environment.
Marianne Karth and the Truck Safety Coalition Petitioners requesting that the agency improve the safety of rear impact underride guards on trailers and single unit trucks. Summary This document denies a petition for rulemaking submitted by Mr. Toyota and the Auto Alliance Alliance.
The information shall be in English and in not less than 10 point type. This final rule applies to electric vehicles EVs and to those hybrid vehicles HVs that are capable of propulsion in any forward or reverse gear without the vehicle’s internal combustion engine ICE operating. Summary This document denies a fmvxs petition submitted by Mr.
Previously, the maximum allowable upward mounting angle was 15 degrees beyond vertical.
ANSI is also involved in setting standards for alternative vehicle technology in particular. This correction removes language relating to the incorporation by reference of certain publications that was inadvertently and inappropriately included in the preamble to the proposed rule. Optional early compliance as discussed below. Marianne Karth and the Truck Safety Coalition relating to rear impact underride guards.
Additionally, consumers can purchase their own tool and locate it in the vehicle where they would be likely to access it in an emergency.
The performance requirements would also ensure that seats and overhead luggage racks remain secured and window glazing attached to its mounting during and after a rollover crash, and would ensure that emergency exits remain closed during the rollover crash and operable after the crash. Initial compliance is required, in accordance with the phase-in schedule, on September 1,
