SYSTEMS AND HARDWARE EFFECTS OF FMVSS 105-75

FMVSS 105 was a modification of the former SAE voluntary standard and was useful as one of a number of test procedures required to establish the acceptability of a brake system. The subsequent FMVSS 105-75 established criteria which do not appear to correlate to the real world, and adequate brake system design still depends on the integrity of manufacturers and engineers. FMVSS 105-75 has created compliance problems, has increased vehicle costs, and has been of marginal benefit to the customer. /GMRL/
