The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration denied The Fire Equipment Manufacturers' Association petition to install portable fire extinguishers in new pickup trucks, SUVs and vans. The NHTSA was concerned a new regulation could increase injuries because many motorists lack training in using the devices. This reeks of a sales campaign to move hundreds of thousands of fire extinguishers. Using an automatic fire extinguisher that activates when a fire is present without driver intervention is the only way we could see this work.
