EDR installed in Light Passenger vehicle by 2014, proposes National Highway Traf

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced of bringing some changes in the development of light passenger vehicles. The newly proposed changes will be applicable on those vehicles, which do not weigh more than 8,500 pounds and will be built on or after Sept. 1, 2014.

To talk about the change that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been thinking to incorporate, is that light passenger vehicles should have event data recorders (EDRs). These recorders are also known as black boxes, which were seen in airplanes, but a long time back.

These black boxes will not be heavy at all. Moreover, it is not the first time when EDR is asked to be placed on road vehicles, as 96% of cars and light-duty vehicles already have EDR.

It would not be a difficult thing to have the EDR, as it is not a costly affair, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The EDR cost about $20, which is quite a genuine amount.

The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers was found to be having some concerns about the future of the step. But, they affirmed that the concern should not be mixed with objection. Decision on the same is still to be taken.
