On October 30, 2017, NHTSA Published the Final Rule with Its Response to a Petition for Reconsideration Regarding Electronic Stability Control Systems for Heavy Vehicles, FMVSS 136, (49 CFR 571.136)

DATES: Petitions for Reconsideration of this Final Rule must be received by December 14, 2017

Summary:  The petitioner, Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA), requested that NHTSA amend the test conditions for the agency’s performance test by allowing a larger lane width for long wheelbase truck tractors. The agency decided to grant the petition because it believed there was sufficient evidence to indicate that a larger lane width is needed for testing of long wheelbase truck tractors.
