Description / Abstract:

This standard provides safety and performance specifications relating to personal transport vehicles, (PTVs), driven by electric motors or internal combustion engines to be operated on designated roadways, or within a closed community where permitted by law or by regulatory authority rules. This standard does not apply to golf cars, which are covered by ANSI/ILTVA Z130.1.

Purpose The purpose of this standard is to promote safety in the design, manufacture, maintenance and operation of PTVs. This standard may be used as a guide by regulatory authorities desiring to formulate safety rules and regulations. This standard is also intended for voluntary use by others associated with manufacturing, maintaining or utilizing PTVs. This standard is intended to apply to vehicles conforming to the definition of a PTV regardless of date of original manufacture, but Part III shall only apply to PTVs newly manufactured one year or more after the date of this standard.1

1 Nothing herein is to be construed as applying to hybrid electric vehicles, i.e., where the internal combustion engine of a conventional vehicle is combined with the battery and electric motor of an electric vehicle. 2 Available from National Technical Information Service, U.S. Department of Commerce, Springfield, VA 22161.
