DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AF86 Publication ID: Spring 1997 
Title: Rescind Controls and Displays 
Abstract: In response to the President's regulatory reinvention initiative, the agency is proposing to rescind this standard. The agency has tentatively concluded that market forces will continue current practices of specifying the location, identification, and illumination of motor vehicle controls and displays. This would afford the vehicle manufacturers more flexibility to provide safety related information in a format that is not design-restrictive.
