This report presents factual information used by EPA which led to the requirements of the motor carrier regulation. Topics discussed are: regulatory strategy, technology for quieting in-use vehicles, costs, measurement methodology, and economic impact. Truck noise sources are analyzed to determine regulatory maximum levels which are consistent with available retrofit technology. Data are presented on relative stringency between the engineering test used by industry and the roadside tests specified by EPA.
