DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AL27 Publication ID: Fall 2015 
Title: Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment" 

This rulemaking would restore the side marker lamp requirements for vehicles that are over 80 inches wide, and also less than 30 feet in overall length, to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment. The requirements were modified when the agency published a final rule reorganizing the standard on December 4, 2007. A 1980 final rule created a relaxed requirement for vehicles that are less than 30 feet in overall length, so that dual-wheeled pickup trucks that share components with regular pickup trucks did not have to meet separate requirements. This relaxed requirement was inadvertently omitted when the rule was reorganized in 2007, so this rulemaking would restore the 1980 language.
