Document Number: E6-2177
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-02-15
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document announces a decision by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that certain 2000 Audi A8 and S8 passenger cars that were not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS) are eligible for importation into the United States because they are substantially similar to vehicles originally manufactured for importation into and sale in the United States and that were certified by their manufacturer as complying with the safety standards (the U.S. certified version of the 2000 Audi A8 and S8 passenger cars), and they are capable of being readily altered to conform to the standards.
Model Specifications for Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices (BAIIDs)
Document Number: 06-1423
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-02-15
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice seeks comments about what revisions are needed for the Model Specifications for Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices (Model Specifications) published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the Federal Register on April 7, 1992 (57 FR 11772). Model specifications are guidelines for the performance and testing of breath alcohol ignition interlock devices (BAIIDs). These devices are designed to prevent a driver from starting a motor vehicle when the driver's breath alcohol content (BrAC) is at or above a set alcohol level. Because changes may be necessary after more than 13 years of experience with this technology, NHTSA is seeking comments regarding the need for revisions to the model specifications.
