Specifics have not been released, but motor coaches sold in the U.S. will be required, at some point, to have seatbelts. An official proposal to that effect is expected sometime this year, according to testimony given May 18 to the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection by the Acting Deputy Administrator of NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), Ronald Medford. NHTSA will base its proposal on a 2007 crash test of a motor coach—the first ever conducted by the U.S. government. Roof crush testing will be conducted by NHTSA this summer to determine whether regulation is necessary in that area. Medford said that NHTSA, along with certain other U.S. Department of Transportation entities, is putting together a larger overall safety plan for motor coaches and will deliver it to the DOT Secretary by July 15.
