Judge Hands Tire Safety Issue Over to NHTSA

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A U.S. district judge recently ordered the National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) to make the decision as to whether or not tire safety data should be released to the public. Safety advocates are pushing NHTSA to collect more data related to tire safety history. They have asked the agency to require tire makers to submit evidence of problems with tires more than five years old. Tire makers have lobbied NHTSA to keep that information secret, anticipating a slew of lawsuits and customer complaints.

In 2002, NHTSA proposed a requirement that tire makers release claim and warranty information under the presumption that it would be non-confidential in cases causing death or injury. However, the rule was never finalized due to the possibility of “competitive harm” to tire makers. The data has not yet been made public.
