COST EVALUATION FOR NINE FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE STANDARDS. VOLUME II: FMVSS 108 (SIDE MARKER LAMPS)
A program was conducted to determine the implementation consumer cost and weight variance per vehicle caused by the implementation of FMVSS 108 in January 1970. This study is direct to the implementation of the lamps to the system. Baseline systems were established and a cost and weight variance was considered the implementation cost and weight. A volume weighted average was prepared for the four car classes in the years of implementation. The weighted average factors were applied to the 1979 car volumes. The implementation resulted in a consumer cost increase of $2.89 and a weight increase of .38 pounds. The Halogen Lamp was studied and the consumer cost was estimated to be $3.21 each. Weight of the lamp was 1.1 pounds.
