Title: Amend FMVSS No. 141 to Allow Driver-Selectable Vehicle Sounds 
Abstract:

This notice would amend the Quiet Vehicle safety standard FMVSS No. 141, Minimum Sound Requirements for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles, to allow driver-selectable sounds. NHTSA previously sought comment to modify the requirements of the safety standard so that hybrid and electric vehicles could be equipped with a suite of up to five pedestrian alert sounds from which a driver may select a preference.
