WASHINGTON (March 31)—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration needs to make provisions for accepting electronic tire registration if the registration rate is to increase above its current 10 percent, the Rubber Manufacturers Association has told NHTSA. The current, consumer card-based registration system results in mostly inaccurate, incomplete or illegible registrations, according to Ann Wilson, RMA senior vice president-government affairs. "The current tire registration system was crafted in 1970, when telephones were rotary-dial and most computers were the size of a small car," Wilson said in a letter to the agency.
