Re: Smart Pass Program Expiration

The Tennessee Department of Revenue would like to inform you that the Smart Pass program our department administered has ended, due to the expiration of a federal law. You are receiving this letter because our records indicate you may have received a Smart Pass decal.

Under the Smart Pass program, which began in 2009, owners of low emissions and energy efficient vehicles could apply for a decal permitting them to drive in the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes at any time on Tennessee interstates, regardless of the number of passengers present in their vehicle. Recently, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sent official notice to Tennessee of the expiration of the exemption for all previously allowed low emission and energy efficient vehicles (LEEEV) in HOV lanes.

Due to the expiration of this federal law, the Smart Pass program has ended in Tennessee. Therefore, the HOV smart pass decal shown below is no longer valid. Please remove the decal at your earliest convenience. LEEEVs will now be treated as either a single occupant vehicle or HOV. If you need further information, please submit a question through “Revenue Help” at www.tn.gov/revenue.Thank you for your cooperation.Vehicle Services Division• 44 Vantage Way, Nashville, TN 37243Tel (615) 741-3101 or (888) 871-3171 • www.tn.gov/revenue

8 Fascinating Technical Facts About The Honda NSX. Here is number 1:

We found an article in carthrottle.com called 8 Fascinating Technical Facts About The Honda NSX. Here is number 1:

1. It was the first car to have a mass-produced, all-aluminium monocoque body Honda –

The use of aluminium is prevalent in all different levels of car production these days, but not when the NSX – or New Sportscar eXperimental – was developed. Inspired by the usage of the material in the Shinkansen bullet train, the NSX’s designers decided the new Honda could – and should – be made out of it, resulting in the world’s first mass-produced aluminium car. To aid the development and spot any potential issues, a prototype all-aluminium CRX was built and put through rigorous tests.

By constructing much of the car from aluminium, the NSX ended up being 440 lbs lighter than if it had been made from steel.
