Technical Report on the Effectiveness of Amber Rear Turn Signals for Reducing Rear Impacts
Document Number: E9-10858
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-05-11
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This purpose of this report is to determine the effect of rear turn signal color on the likelihood of being involved in a rear-end crash. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108 allows rear turn signals to be either red or amber in color. The primary conclusion is that amber rear turn signals are 5.3% more effective than red rear turn signals at preventing involvement in crashes where a careful driver would typically use the turn signals. The result is shown to be statistically significant and consistent with other published analyses on the influence of rear turn signal color.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Occupant Crash Protection
Document Number: E9-10098
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-05-04
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document denies a petition for rulemaking submitted by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (the Alliance) requesting that the agency amend the provisions of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, ``Occupant crash protection,'' that apply to the selection of child restraint systems for testing advanced air bag systems. Among other things, the Alliance requested that the agency commit to amending the list of child restraints in Appendix A of FMVSS No. 208 every three years and allow manufacturers the option of certifying vehicles to any edition of Appendix A for five model years after the edition first becomes effective. We are denying these requests because they are not conducive to maintaining the appendix, do not ensure child restraints are representative of the current fleet for testing with advanced air bag systems, and are unnecessarily restrictive.

Average Fuel Economy Standards Passenger Cars and Light Trucks Model Year 2011
Document Number: E9-6839
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-03-30
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The future of this country's economy, security, and environment are linked to one key challenge: energy. To reduce fuel consumption, NHTSA has been issuing Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards since the late 1970's under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA). However, the principal effects of these standards are broader than their statutory purpose. Reducing fuel consumption conserves petroleum, a non-renewable energy source, saves consumers money, and promotes energy independence and security by reducing dependence on foreign oil. It also directly reduces the motor vehicle tailpipe emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is the principal greenhouse gas emitted by motor vehicles.

Corporate Average Fuel Economy Standards; Effect Upon State Laws and Regulations
Document Number: E9-6061
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-03-20
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
In a notice of proposed rulemaking published on May 2, 2008, proposing Corporate Average Fuel standards for model years 2011-2015, NHTSA set forth its previously stated view regarding preemption under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of State standards regulating carbon dioxide emissions from motor vehicle tailpipes and proposed to include a summary statement of those views in the Code of Federal Regulations. However, in a January 26, 2009 memorandum requesting that NHTSA complete its rulemaking in two phases, the President further requested the agency to reconsider its views. In accordance with that request, NHTSA will re-examine the issue of preemption in the context of its forthcoming rulemaking to establish Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards for model year 2012 and later years.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard; Rearview Mirrors
Document Number: E9-4500
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-03-04
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document initiates rulemaking to amend Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 111, Rearview Mirrors,\1\ to improve a driver's ability to see areas to the rear of a motor vehicle in order to mitigate fatalities and injuries associated with backover incidents. The agency and Congress are concerned that vehicles have ``blind zones,'' \2\ areas behind the vehicle in which drivers may have difficulty seeing and avoiding a person or other obstacle.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard; Air Brake Systems
Document Number: E9-4492
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-03-03
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document extends for six months a requirement that trailers with antilock brake systems be equipped with an external antilock malfunction indicator lamp. This requirement, which is included in the Federal motor vehicle safety standard that governs vehicles equipped with air brakes, is currently scheduled to sunset on March 1, 2009. As a result of this interim final rule, the sunset date is September 1, 2009. We are taking this action in connection with our consideration of a petition for rulemaking from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) requesting that the requirement be made permanent. In a separate document, we are proposing a further extension of the requirement, to March 1, 2011. This interim final rule prevents the occurrence of a potential time gap for the vehicles that are subject to the requirement, should the agency ultimately decide to further extend the time period.
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard; Air Brake Systems
Document Number: E9-4491
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-03-03
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document proposes to extend by 18 months a requirement that trailers with antilock brake systems be equipped with an external antilock malfunction indicator lamp. It also considers making the requirement permanent. The indicator lamp requirement, which is included in the Federal motor vehicle safety standard that governs vehicles equipped with air brakes, was originally scheduled to sunset on March 1, 2009, but has been extended to September 1, 2009 in an interim final rule published in today's Federal Register. Under our proposal, the sunset date would be extended until March 1, 2011. This rulemaking is in response to a petition from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), which has asked that this requirement be made permanent. Extending the sunset date for an additional 18 months would enable the agency to fully analyze CVSA's request that the requirement be made permanent, and avoid a potential confusing time gap in the vehicles subject to the requirement.

Before a Federal agency can collect certain information from the public, it must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Under procedures established by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before seeking OMB approval, Federal agencies must solicit public comment on proposed collections of information, including extensions and reinstatement of previously approved collections. This document describes one collection of information for which NHTSA intends to seek OMB approval.
