Case Description: 

Public Citizen, the New York Public Interest Research Group, and the Center for Auto Safety have successfully challenged the Department of Transportation's decision to allow installation of an ineffective system to warn drivers when their tires are under inflated.

The Court of Appeals found the Department of Transportation's rules on tire inflation devices contrary to law and arbitrary.
