TLC #109 B – INVENTORYING both 7-3/4 in² and 11-5/8 in² (EPLLA) BRAKE/TURN LAMPS

The “EPLLA” mandate for Under 80” Wide (Single) Vehicle Brake/Turn Signals is only 7-3/4 in² compared to 11-5/8 in² for Over 80” Vehicles.  Considering this … most Trailer, RV, and Trucking OEM’s … as well as Aftermarket and OEM Lighting Suppliers … must ask themselves … “Why would we consider buying and inventorying legally, Compliant 7 or 3-Function* under 80” Lighting Assemblies that have only 7-3/4 in² of “EPLLA” qualifying Lens area when we know we are also being required to buy and warehouse 11-5/8in² “EPLLA” Lensed Area Lamps.  This kind of “Two Sized” 7 and 3-Function* Inventory approach doesn’t save much money, and greatly complicates inventories, and therefore is simply not practical for most OEM and Aftermarket Suppliers to consider!  Logical conclusion! … all Brake/Turn Signals inventoried should have a minimum of 11-5/8in² of “EPLLA”.
     *That is, the popular 6” Ovals and 4” Round 3 Function “Big Rig” Type Lights, both of which have ≈ 12in² EPLLA’s when no reflector area is used
