REPORT: NHTSA to mandate lane departure warning and auto-brake systems?
NHTSA will decide whether to require such systems in 2011 after further cost-benefit analysis, including looking at insurance company data and estimated manufacturing costs. It has already added new components to its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) for 2011 vehicles, including a test that measures the effectiveness of lane-departure warning systems and a different frontal-crash program.
NHTSA hopes to announce its findings by the end of the year.
