New York Reintroduces Bill to Ban the Use of Grille/Brush Guards
A new bill (A.B. 107) to prohibit the use of grille or brush guards attached to a motor vehicle’s chassis has been reintroduced in the New York State Assembly.
We Urge You to Contact Members of the New York Assembly Transportation Committee (List Below) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to A.B. 107.
A.B. 107 relies on unsubstantiated claims that these grille guards create the potential of greater harm to other vehicles in the event of a collision.
A.B. 107 relies on unsubstantiated claims that grille guards obstruct airbag sensors, rendering the airbags useless in an accident.
A.B. 107 would require owners of vehicles currently equipped with certain grille guards (including those purchased with this equipment from a dealership) to remove these guards.
A.B. 107 ignores an existing federal prohibition against selling equipment that would take a vehicle out of compliance with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, including Section 208 which covers occupant crash protection and air bags.
DON'T DELAY! Please contact members of the New York Assembly Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their opposition to this bill.
Please e-mail a copy of your letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
