InterModal Technologies, Inc.; Denial of Petition for a Temporary Exemption From Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 121
Document Number: E6-2001
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-02-13
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice denies a petition from InterModal Technologies, Inc., for a temporary exemption from certain requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 121, Air brake systems. The denial is based on the petitioner's failure to persuade the agency that the safety device in question provides a safety level at least equal to that of the applicable Federal standard. Further, it failed to articulate how the exemption would make easier the development or field evaluation of the safety device for which the exemption is being sought. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published a notice of receipt of the application on July 19, 2004, and afforded an opportunity for comment.\1\
