On January 5, 2024 the NHTSA published an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) in the Federal Register. This notice deals with Advanced Impaired Driving Prevention Technology by announcing the NHTSA's research and testing on this topic, discussing the current state of advanced impaired driving technology, and requesting public comments on some specific topics and questions. This action initiates rulemaking that would gather the information necessary to develop performance requirements and require that new passenger motor vehicles must be equipped with advanced drunk and impaired driving prevention technology. It would result in a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) related to preventing drunk and impaired driving. Comments are due no later than March 5, 2024.
We were delighted to see so many of our automotive industry colleagues at the SAE Government/Industry Meeting in January this year.
