Title: +Rear Seat Belt Reminder System 
Abstract:

This rulemaking would amend FMVSS No. 208, Occupant crash protection,” to require automobile manufacturers to install a seat belt reminder system for rear seating positions in passenger vehicles. The seat belt reminder system is intended to increase belt usage and thereby improve the crash protection of vehicle occupants who would otherwise have been unbelted. This rulemaking would respond in part to a petition for rulemaking submitted by Public Citizen and Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, as well as MAP-21 requirements.
