NHTSA adds provisions to vehicle labeling rule for more clarity
Light truck tire load range and tire service information are now allowed to be displayed on vehicle placards, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Placards also may feature "an alphanumeric and/or barcode part identifier along the bottom or side edges of the placard," say NHTSA officials.
"This final rule clarifies certain placard and label subheading requirements and responds to several requests for legal interpretation."
In November 2002, NHTSA plublished a final rule that established new tire safety information labeling requirements for vehicles. In June 2004, the agency made certain amendments to the original requirements.
