|97-6- 1||Public Hearing to Consider Adoption of New Certification Tests and
Standards to Control Emissions from Aggressive Driving and Air- Conditioner
Usage for Passenger Cars, Light-Duty Trucks, and Medium-Duty Vehicles under
8,501 Pounds Gross Vehicle Weight Rating
Studies conducted in the past several years have shown that the Federal Test Procedure, used by the Air Resources Board (ARB) to determine compliance with vehicle emission standards, does not accurately reflect various driving conditions, such as aggressive driving and use of air-conditioning. During these operating conditions, emissions can be substantially higher than those measured during the normal Federal Test Procedure driving cycles. Staff is proposing supplemental test procedures and associated emission standards to control emissions during aggressive driving and air-conditioner usage.
|97-6- 2||Public Meeting to Consider a Draft Report: Planned Air Pollution
Research: 1997 Update

The one-page descriptions of proposed projects contained in the document will be brought to the Board later as research proposals for their approval.
