Federal Highway Safety Administration (FHSA)

What is the Federal Highway Administration?

The Federal Highway Safety Administration or FHSA is a department within the United States Department of Transportation that helps and supports State and local government in the design, construction, and maintenance of all highways across the nation and includes various tribal owned lands. The FHSA is responsible for making the roads throughout the nation safe and the most technologically sound in the world. The FHSA was created on October 15th, 1966, after the nation had several other programs that failed.

Is it federal law for a vehicle to have functional airbags to pass inspection in the state of Virginia?

In order for a vehicle to pass inspection in the state of Virginia, a vehicle has to have any and all federal safety equipment that is standard for the time period. Since airbags are required by federal safety standards, then the vehicle would have to have the airbags functional. If the person has received a letter of authorization, then the airbags can be deactivated, but if the person does not have the letter, then the vehicle would not pass inspection.

According to Federal Highway Safety Administration is an electric scooter allowed on the street or is the rules of pedestrian apply?

If a person has an electric scooter/wheelchair, then the person would need to operate it on the sidewalks if a sidewalk is provided. If there is no sidewalk, then the scooter/wheelchair would need to follow the rules set forth for pedestrians and use the shoulder of the road.

If a Highway that has a speed limit of 55miles per hour and is under prima facie without a traffic engineering speed survey, is legal for law enforcement to conduct radar checks even if it’s a undivided highway and does C.V.C 22349(B) supersede all other C.V.Cs including prima facie code.

According to code 22349(B);
“(a) Except as provided in Section 22356, no person may drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than 65 miles per hour.

(b) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person may drive a vehicle upon a two-lane, undivided highway at a speed greater than 55 miles per hour unless that highway, or portion thereof, has been posted for a higher speed by the Department of Transportation or appropriate local agency upon the basis of an engineering and traffic survey. For purposes of this subdivision, the following apply:
(1) A two-lane, undivided highway is a highway with not more than one through lane of travel in each direction.
(2) Passing lanes may not be considered when determining the number of through lanes.

(c) It is the intent of the Legislature that there be reasonable signing on affected two-lane, undivided highways described in subdivision (b) in continuing the 55 miles-per-hour speed limit, including placing signs at county boundaries to the extent possible, and at other appropriate locations.”


So according to the code, unless otherwise stated then the speed limit would be 55 miles an hour.

According to the Federal Highway Safety Administration, which Nissan Skylines are able to be legally imported in the United States and where can a person find one?

The person would need to check with the National Highway Safety Administration since they generally change the items on the list for various reasons. The vehicles that are imported must be less than 25 years old and meet the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards regulations and must be imported through a registered importer. If the vehicles do not meet the standards, then the person would have a number of days to get the vehicle up to the standards.

When a person drives on a highway or has a car, then they have to go by the guidelines set forth by the Federal Highway Safety Administration. The FHSA has a strict set of guidelines that they abide by and when questions regarding these guidelines arises, then the person would need to contact an Expert to gain the advice that they need.
