A Peek At NHTSA's Wishlist In The Grow America Act

Law360, New York (May 19, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT) -- The U.S. Department of Transportation recently unveiled its long-term transportation bill, entitled the Grow America Act. Buried among the 350-page bill are eight pages of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration “wish-list” items that, if passed into law, would significantly enhance the agency’s enforcement and rulemaking authority.

Most notably, the bill proposes to:

Increase the civil penalty cap for a related series of violations from $35 million to $300 million, and to increase the per-vehicle penalty from the current inflation-adjusted $7,000 per vehicle to $25,000 per vehicle (and $100,000 per vehicle for certain violations related to school buses).
