More NHTSA Regulation

More "cracking down"....


Lighting: Aftermarket Lighting: NHTSA Seeks Guidance on “Letters of Interpretation”:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) frequently provides guidance to the industry in the form of letters of interpretation. NHTSA has now gone one-step further. In July 2003 it requested industry comments on two proposed letters of interpretation governing aftermarket lighting equipment. The first deals with aftermarket equipment that shifts the location of the rear reflex reflectors for Honda Civic tail lamps from the vehicle body lamp to the trunk lamp. NHTSA is proposing to reject this practice. The second is switching the type of color and wattage used in replacement lamps (ex: from a clear bulb to a red bulb). NHTSA is proposing to reject this practice. In both instances, it is NHTSA’s position that a replacement item must conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108 in the same manner as the original equipment for which the vehicle manufacturer certified compliance. By implication, NHTSA’s strict application of FMVSS No. 108 would be potentially applicable to other lighting practices as well. For more information, use this link and scroll down to NHTSA listing: http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fedreg/a030717c.html

On the one hand I can see how they should have some regulation, otherwise at night, youd' see colored moving objects of all shapes and colors and dimensions. Probably won't even be able to recognize a car from a UFO. But some of the laws are a little too...how should we put it...anal.

The day is fast approaching where the law will be that unless any replacement part is an exact duplicate of the OEM part, it will be illegal to be modified, imported, manufactured or sold in the US.

whatever happened to "....the land of the free....", this is getting silly. To a point I can see the regulation needed, but due to people throwing colored led washer nozzle lights on their hoods is really screwing things up for the rest of us. People need more common sense about the usage of their lights to keep them for show use and not for street use. I mean, it is cool and all to show off your new stuff, but a time and place for everything. geez, I am starting to sound like the NHTSA, doh!!
