NHTSA Plans Meeting on Tire Fuel Efficiency

Filed under: Silica, Tires — Notch @ 12:09 pm

From Tire Business comes word that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will hold a public meeting at the headquarters of the US Department of Transportation on 26 March on its on-going tire fuel efficiency testing and labeling program.

The public hearing is intended to further define the consumer education element of the Congressionally mandated program. The new tire testing, labeling and education mandate was included in the Energy Bill of 2007, passed and signed in December 2007. NHTSA issued preliminary regulations last year, and was expected to issue its final regulations by the end of 2009.
