NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) will hold compliance workshops/demonstrations in late June for new rules covering roof strength and vehicle footprint (as it relates to vehicle classification for corporate average fuel economy). The workshops will be held on one or two to-be-determined days the week of June 22. Registration is required for the free event at General Testing Laboratories in Colonial Beach, VA. To register, contact maritza.marshall@dot.gov or elena.sonsev@dot.gov. For technical issues relating to roof crush resistance testing, contact james.jones@dot.gov. For technical issues relating to vehicle footprint, contact john.finneran@dot.gov.
