The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has denied a petition for rulemaking requesting that the agency establish a federal motor vehicle safety standard to prevent a vehicle from being steered into a rollover at any speed. Apparently, the petitioner applied for a patent on a device that he believes will enable vehicles to meet the standard he requested. In issuing the denial, NHTSA stated that (i) the petition “lacks sufficient data to support proposing and promulgating a safety standard,” and (ii) the requested standard “might create conflicts with existing safety standards.” See Federal Register, March 1, 2013.
