The Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation Act of 2000 requires NHTSA to develop a dynamic test on rollovers by motor vehicles for the purposes of a consumer information program, to carry out a program of conducting such tests, and, as these tests are being developed, to conduct a rulemaking to determine how best to disseminate test results to the public.

From 2001. In response to the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act of 2000, this document proposes to establish a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard that contains provisions to improve the labeling of tires to assist consumers in identifying tires that may be the subject of a safety recall. It also contains proposals for providing other consumer information to increase public awareness of the importance and methods of observing motor vehicle tire load limits and maintaining proper tire inflation levels for the safe operation of a motor vehicle. The proposals would apply to all new and retreaded tires for use on vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less and to all vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less, except for motorcycles and low speed vehicles. NHTSA will also be proposing upgraded safety performance requirements for tires in a forthcoming proposal, which would also be included in this new standard.
From 2011. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issues this report to present our studies and findings concerning unintended acceleration (UA) in vehicles manufactured by Toyota. This report should be read in conjunction with the report issued by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) concerning the electronic throttle control (ETC) system in Toyota vehicles. In March 2010, NHTSA enlisted the support of NASA in analyzing the Toyota ETC system to determine whether it contained any vulnerabilities that might realistically be expected to produce UA in a consumer's use of those vehicles. NASA did not find an electronic cause of large throttle openings that can result in UA incidents. NHTSA did not find a vehicle-based cause of those incidents in addition to those causes already addressed by Toyota recalls.

Technical Support to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on the Reported Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) Unintended Acceleration (UA) Investigationhttps://www.nhtsa.gov/document/technical-support-n...
From 2011. The NASA Engineering and Safety Center (NESC) was requested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to study Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) Unintended Accelerations (UAs). The goal of the study was to determine if there are design and implementation vulnerabilities in the Toyota Electronic Throttle Control System Intelligent (ETCS-i) that could cause UAs and whether those vulnerabilities, if substantiated, could realistically occur in consumers’ use of these vehicles.
