Dear Congressman Radanovich:
Thank you for your letter on behalf of your constituent, Mr. Bret de St. Jeor, who submitted a series of questions to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regarding his product, Charlie Choo-Choos Party Train. Mr. St. Jeor contacted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in April via telephone and spoke with an attorney in the Office of the Chief Counsel, Ari Scott. Mr. Scott requested that Mr. St. Jeor submit his questions in writing regarding how the Federal motor vehicle safety standards would apply to his product.
As we discussed with Mr. St. Jeor, a response to his questions could take some time depending the complexity of the issue. We are currently reviewing Mr. St. Jeors request, and are in the process of preparing a response. Mr. St. Joers submission includes detailed information that requires careful analysis by NHTSA. We expect to provide Mr. St. Joer with a response to his questions in the near future.
I hope this information if helpful. If I can be of further assistance, please have your staff contact me or Anthony M. Cooke, Chief Counsel at (202) 366-9511.
