    In the U.S., the 5 mph bumper rule was abolished as part of Reagan-era deregulation.

    There was more to it than Reagan, I believe - the NHTSA for one. But - being an international marketplace, having just one country with the regulation - and the rest of the world ~ 165 countries not wanting it, made it an almost impossible situation.

    OK - it never came here - or to most of the world. Except some of our cars inherited the ugly bumpers.
    This is my VOLVO 1974

    Here’s one of the victims of the “stricter” bumper rules in Canada. A 2005 VW Jetta (Bora) wagon.
