Document Number: 2010-1613
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-01-28
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This NPRM proposes amendments to the regulations establishing the criteria for designing and conducting State seat belt use observational surveys, procedures for obtaining NHTSA approval of survey designs, and a new form for reporting seat belt use rates to NHTSA. NHTSA proposes these amendments so that future surveys will give States more accurate data to guide their occupant protection programs.
