On April 12, 2017, the Safety Spectrum Coalition submitted comments on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) January 12, 2017 notice of proposed rulemaking on “Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; V2V Communications.” The Safety Spectrum Coalition represents a broad group of industries, highway users, and transportation technology, consumer, and safety advocates that support and promote the need for Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) technology, supported by the 5.9 GHz safety spectrum band. DSRC vehicle-to-vehicle communications (V2V) can save lives and significantly reduce the injuries, damage, and congestion caused by motor vehicle crashes. The Safety Spectrum Coalition strongly supports this proposed rule establishing a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) requiring V2V capability through DSRC technology in cars and light trucks.
