DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AL57 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: +Retroreflective Tape for Single Unit Trucks 

NHTSA withdraws its July 23, 2015 Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) that responded in part to a petition for rulemaking regarding possible amendments to the Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSSs) relating to rear underride guards. The ANPRM requested comment on NHTSA's analysis of the costs and benefits of amending the FMVSS to single unit trucks (SUTs) either to be equipped with improved rear underride guards or with retroreflective tape to improve visibility to other drivers. NHTSA has determined based on the comments received, as well as further agency analysis of the petitions, that the changes considered in the ANPRM are not justified at this time.
