NHTSA Withdraws Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications Regulatory Proposal

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has withdrawn a regulatory proposal that would have required certain vehicle-to-vehicle communication technologies in all light-vehicles.

In its formal filing declaring its decision to withdraw the regulatory proposal, NHTSA stated that it still believes that, "V2V and other vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies hold tremendous promise to improve safety and to offer innovative services to consumers...However, given the advent of new V2V communications protocol, and the revised regulations governing the 5.9 GHz band, the agency believes a regulatory action to revise the proposed rule making cannot be reasonably accomplished at this time."
