Vehicles Built in Two or More Stages
Document Number: 05-2751
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-02-14
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The final rule amends four different parts of title 49 to address the certification issues related to vehicles built in two or more stages and, to a lesser degree, to altered vehicles. The amendments allow the use of pass-through certification so that it can be used not only for multi-stage vehicles based on chassis-cabs, but also for those based on other types of incomplete vehicles. The amendments also create a new process under which intermediate and final-stage manufacturers and alterers can obtain temporary exemptions from dynamic performance requirements, and provide an automatic one year of additional lead time for new safety requirements for intermediate and final-stage manufacturers and alterers, unless the agency determines with respect to a particular requirement that a longer or shorter time period is appropriate. This final rule also refines the agency's interpretation of ``vehicle type'' to more appropriately reflect the congressional and judicial considerations. Because vehicles built in two or more stages are more properly considered a ``vehicle type,'' the agency will be able more properly to consider the benefits and burdens of various compliance options when developing Federal motor vehicle standards.
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Low Speed Vehicles; Termination of Rulemaking
Document Number: 05-2471
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-02-11
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The purpose of this document is to announce the termination of a rulemaking in which the agency had considered adding additional conspicuity requirements applicable to low-speed vehicles (LSV), as well as a requirement that LSVs bear a label identifying the safety hazards associated with their operation in mixed traffic. Due to the absence of data showing a conspicuity-related safety problem with current LSV designs, the agency has decided to terminate the rulemaking.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Occupant Crash Protection
Document Number: 05-2469
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-02-09
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice denies petitions for reconsideration submitted by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (Alliance) of the August 20, 2004, final rule on advanced air bag provisions in the occupant crash protection standard. We are denying the first petition because it references a test procedure that the agency has not yet proposed, for which an effective date will be proposed when a Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) seat installation procedure is published. We are denying the second petition because we have previously responded to the same issue and no new data have been presented.
