NHTSA proposes to amend Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 208 - Occupant Crash Protection to require a rear seat belt usage warning system. NHTSA is requesting public comments to a number of specific questions. Comments are due by November 26, 2019. This ANPRM continues a response to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act of 2012. NHTSA initiated rulemaking in 2013.
