NTSB Safety Recommendations H-09-22 through -24, H-99-47, -

48, -50, and -51 (Reiterations)

************************************************************

The NTSB makes the following recommendations to the National

Highway Traffic Safety Administration:

Require all new motor vehicles weighing over 10,000 pounds

to be equipped with direct tire pressure monitoring systems

to inform drivers of the actual tire pressures on their

vehicles. (H-09-22)

Develop performance standards for newly manufactured

motorcoaches to require that overhead luggage racks remain

anchored during an accident sequence. (H-09-23)

Develop performance standards for newly manufactured

motorcoaches that prevent head and neck injuries from

overhead luggage racks. (H-09-24)

Further, the NTSB reiterates Safety Recommendations H-99-47,

-48, -50, and -51 to the National Highway Traffic Safety

Administration:

In 2 years, develop performance standards for motorcoach

occupant protection systems that account for frontal impact

collisions, side impact collisions, rear impact collisions,

and rollovers. (H-99-47)

Once pertinent standards have been developed for motorcoach

occupant protection systems, require newly manufactured

motorcoaches to have an occupant crash protection system

that meets the newly developed performance standards and

retains passengers, including those in child safety

restraint systems, within the seating compartment throughout

the accident sequence for all accident scenarios. (H-99-48)

In 2 years, develop performance standards for motorcoach

roof strength that provide maximum survival space for all

seating positions and that take into account current typical

motorcoach window dimensions. (H-99-50)

Once performance standards have been developed for

motorcoach roof strength, require newly manufactured

motorcoaches to meet those standards. (H-99-51)
