Title: Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 111, Rearview Mirrors  
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend Federal Motor Vehicle Standard No. 111; Rearview Mirrors, to reflect requirements contained in the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act of 2007. The Act requires that NHTSA expand the required field of view to enable the driver of a motor vehicle to detect areas behind the motor vehicle to reduce death and injury resulting from backing incidents, particularly incidents involving small children and disabled persons. According to the Act, such a standard may be met by the provision of additional mirrors, sensors, cameras, or other technology to expand the driverĀ“s field of view.

Additional Information: The comment entitled 'Safety on Garbage Trucks' found in DOT's August 2011 Retrospective Regulatory Review Plan has been considered as part of this rulemaking. In considering several factors, the Agency has proposed to limit the scope of this rulemaking to light vehicles. The monetized costs outweigh the monetized benefits and therefore the net impact is a cost of between $677M and $1,048M. SB: N, IC: N, SLT: N
