Dear Mr. Davis:

Robert Hellmuth of this agency has sent us for reply your letter of June 8, 1994, commenting that "a car's brake lights should go on not only when the brake pedal is pressed, but should also go on when the gas pedal is released."

The enclosed copy of a letter dated January 25, 1990, to Larry Snowhite, Esq., represents the agency's views on this matter, now as then.

We appreciate the concern for safety that prompted you to get in touch with us.


John Womack Acting Chief Counsel
