Safety ratings to appear on all new vehicle price stickers in U.S.
Washington, D.C. – Manufacturers will display the U.S. government’s star safety ratings on every new vehicle’s price sticker, according to a federal rule made yesterday in Washington, D.C. The rule provides for an expanded window sticker on new cars beginning with the 2008 model year.
The new stickers will contain National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety ratings in three areas: front and side crash, and non-destructive rollover tests. All three tests use the five-star rating, with five stars being the safest.
