WASHINGTON (Feb. 11)—In comments to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Rubber Manufacturers Association suggested minor tweaking to two tire-related rules emanating from the Transportation Recall Efficiency, Accountability and Documentation Act. A proposal for the acceleration of product defect remedies "is based on the assumption that recalls are always massive undertakings. However, for the tire industry that is rarely the case," wrote Ann Wilson, RMA senior vice president. A measure to reimburse consumers for product problems prior to a recall should "require consumers to demonstrate proof of purchase by a variety of methods," Wilson said.
