The original comment period closed September 21, These ffmvss and the associated test procedures would identify those helmets whose physical characteristics indicate that they likely cannot meet the existing performance requirements of the standard. This NPRM proposes to upgrade the Federal motor vehicle safety standards that address rear underride protection in crashes into trailers and semitrailers.

The information shall be in English and in not less than 10 point type. Fourth, with respect to the granting of exemptions to enable companies to participate in such a program, the Agency seeks comments on the nature of the safety and any other analyses that it should perform in assessing the merits of individual exemption petitions and on the types of terms and conditions it should consider attaching to exemptions to protect public safety and facilitate the Agency’s monitoring and learning from 330 testing and deployment, while preserving the freedom to innovate.


These comments will aid the Agency in setting research priorities as well as inform its subsequent actions to lay a path for innovative vehicle designs and technologies that feature ADSs. For several years, NHTSA has researched forward collision avoidance and mitigation technology on heavy vehicles, including forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking systems. Toyota and the Auto Alliance Alliance.

This standard also applies to school buses regardless of weight that use CNG as a motor fuel. Check-in through security will begin at 9 a. The performance requirements would ensure that these vehicles provide a sufficient level of survival space fmvxs restrained occupants in rollover crashes.

The effective date of the final rule published on December 14, 81 FRis delayed until September 5, Initial compliance is required, in accordance with the phase-in schedule, on September ffmvss, Toyota Motor North America, Fmvsss.

The barrier and test vehicle are positioned so that at impact. Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than December 14, ADS testing and development are already underway in several areas of the United States.

Effective April 27, This new standard requires hybrid and electric passenger cars, light trucks and vans LTVsand low speed vehicles LSVs to produce sounds meeting the requirements of this standard.

Summary This NPRM proposes to upgrade the Federal motor vehicle safety standards that address rear underride protection in crashes into trailers and semitrailers. Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than March 24, 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.

The petitioners request that NHTSA require underride guards on vehicles not currently required by the FMVSSs to have guards, notably, single unit trucks, and improve the standards’ requirements for all fmvsss, including guards now required for heavy trailers and semitrailers.

Any valve shall be open for a period of one minute to equalize the system pressure. 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. High pressure portion of a fuel system fmvas all the components from and including each CNG fuel container up to, but fmfss including, the first pressure regulator.


49 CFR 571.303 – Standard No. 303; Fuel system integrity of compressed natural gas vehicles.

We propose that the compliance date for the amendments in this rulemaking action would be three years following the date of publication of the final rule in the Federal Register. Full compliance is required on September 1, Electrolyte Spillage and Electric Shock Protection 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.

NHTSA will publish a list of helmets that have complied with the alternative compliance process and can therefore be certified by their manufacturers. This notification announces the docketing and availability of this research.

The standard includes classifications V-0 the most stringentV-1 and V 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. Implementation of the new standard will enable vehicle manufacturers to develop safety applications that employ V2V communications as an input, two of which are estimated to prevent hundreds of thousands of crashes and prevent over one thousand fatalities annually.
