Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
In accordance with Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, FHWA and NHTSA are evaluating their State highway safety plan development and reporting requirements.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Motorcycle Brake Systems; Motorcycle Controls and Displays
Document Number: 2014-27871
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-11-26
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document proposes to amend Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSSs) Nos. 122 and 123, to allow the use of an internationally recognized symbol as the antilock brake system (ABS) malfunction telltale. Although the use of the symbol complies with the FMVSS No. 122 requirement that the letters ``ABS'' indicate a malfunction, the height of the letters ``ABS'' within the standardized malfunction symbol on many motorcycles do not comply with the letter height requirement in FMVSS No. 122. We also are proposing a technical change to correct a mistake in the 2012 final rule adopting FMVSS No. 122.
