NHTSA redefines 'designated seating position'

  • 23-Oct-2008 01:35 EDT

NHTSA (U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) in early October issued a final rule that spells out more clearly for consumers which seats in a vehicle afford full safety. The agency took action to better define what constitutes a designated seating position (DSP) because of concerns that it's not clear in some vehicles; an example is a vehicle with a second or third row that has room for three passengers but has only two seating positions that provide full safety protection. The rule also encourages automakers to make better use of visual clues to indicate which are and are not DSPs.
