SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Motor Vehicle Theft Law Enforcement Act of 1984 (Theft Act) was implemented to enhance detection and prosecution of motor vehicle theft (Pub. L. 98–547). The Theft Act added a new title VI to the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act, which required the Secretary of Transportation to issue a theft prevention standard for identifying major parts of certain high-theft lines of passenger cars. The Act also addressed several other actions to reduce motor vehicle theft, such as increased criminal penalties for those who traffic in stolen vehicles and parts, curtailment of the exportation of stolen motor vehicles and off-highway mobile equipment, establishment of penalties for dismantling vehicles for the purpose of trafficking in stolen parts, and development of ways to encourage decreases in premiums charged to consumers for motor vehicle theft insurance.

The theft standard became effective in Model Year 1987 for designated hightheft car lines. The Anti Car Theft Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102–519) amended the law relating to the parts-marking of major component parts on designated high-theft vehicles. One amendment made by the Anti Car Theft Act was to 49 U.S.C. 33101(10), where the definition of ‘‘passenger motor vehicle’’ now includes a ‘‘multipurpose passenger vehicle or light-duty truck when that vehicle or truck is rated at not more than 6,000 pounds gross vehicle weight.’’ Since ‘‘passenger motor vehicle’’ was previously defined to include passenger cars only, the effect of the Anti Car Theft Act is that certain multipurpose passenger vehicle (MPV) and light-duty truck (LDT) lines may be determined to be high-theft vehicles subject to the Federal motor vehicle theft prevention standard (49 CFR part 541). Section 33112 of Title 49 requires subject insurers or designated agents to report annually to the agency on theft and recovery of vehicles, on rating rules and plans used by insurers to reduce premiums due to a reduction in motor vehicle thefts, and on actions taken by insurers to assist in deterring thefts. Rental and leasing companies also are required to provide annual theft reports to the agency. In accordance with 49 CFR part 544.5, each insurer, rental and leasing company to which this regulation applies must submit a report annually not later than October 25, beginning with the calendar year for which they are required to report. The report would contain information for the calendar year three years previous to the year in which the report is filed. The report that was due by October 25, 2002 contains the required information for the 1999 calendar year.

(MNA) has determined that approximately 31,266 Michelin Pilot Sport/Alpin tires have been imported into the United States with sidewall markings that do not meet the labeling requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 109 ‘‘New Pneumatic Tires.’’ Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h), MNA has petitioned for a determination that this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety and has filed an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR Part 573, ‘‘Defect and Noncompliance Reports.’’ Notice of receipt of the application was published, with a 30-day comment period, on October 14, 2003, in the Federal Register (68 FR 59235). NHTSA received no comment on this application. The affected tires are those whose sidewalls labeling includes a maximum psi inflation pressure marking which rounds from the metric value to the nearest whole number (in this case down), rather than rounding up to the next higher whole number as specified by FMVSS No. 109 S4.3.4 (a). The tires in question meet or exceed all other requirements of FMVSS 109. The provisions of FMVSS No. 109 applicable to 340 kPa tires that are the subject of the petition require that the psi units be rounded ‘‘to the next higher whole number’’ even when the nearest whole number, would require rounding down, rather than up. The correct marking for the maximum inflation pressure required by FMVSS No. 109 for these tires is: ‘‘340 kPa (50 psi).’’ The E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Motor Vehicle Theft Law Enforcement Act 
of 1984 (Theft Act) was implemented to enhance detection and 
prosecution of motor vehicle theft (Pub. L. 98-547). The Theft Act 
added a new title VI to the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings 
Act, which required the Secretary of Transportation to issue a theft 
prevention standard for identifying major parts of certain high-theft 
lines of passenger cars. The Act also addressed several other actions 
to reduce motor vehicle theft, such as increased criminal penalties for 
those who traffic in stolen vehicles and parts, curtailment of the 
exportation of stolen motor vehicles and off-highway mobile equipment, 
establishment of penalties for dismantling vehicles for the purpose of 
trafficking in stolen parts, and development of ways to encourage 
decreases in premiums charged to consumers for motor vehicle theft 
insurance.
    Title VI (which has since been recodified as 49 U.S.C. chapter 
331), was designed to impede the theft of motor vehicles by creating a 
theft prevention standard which required manufacturers of designated 
high-theft car lines to inscribe or affix a vehicle identification 
number onto major components and replacement parts of all vehicle lines 
selected as high theft. The theft standard became effective in Model 
Year 1987 for designated high-theft car lines.
    The Anti Car Theft Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102-519) amended the law 
relating to the parts-marking of major component parts on designated 
high-theft vehicles. One amendment made by the Anti Car Theft Act was 
to 49 U.S.C. 33101(10), where the definition of ``passenger motor 
vehicle'' now includes a ``multipurpose passenger vehicle or light-duty 
truck when that vehicle or truck is rated at not more than 6,000 pounds 
gross vehicle weight.'' Since ``passenger motor vehicle'' was 
previously defined to include passenger cars only, the effect of the 
Anti Car Theft Act is that certain multipurpose passenger vehicle (MPV) 
and light-duty truck (LDT) lines may be determined to be high-theft 
vehicles subject to the Federal motor vehicle theft prevention standard 
(49 CFR part 541).
    Section 33112 of Title 49 requires subject insurers or designated 
agents to report annually to the agency on theft and recovery of 
vehicles, on rating rules and plans used by insurers to reduce premiums 
due to a reduction in motor vehicle thefts, and on actions taken by 
insurers to assist in deterring thefts. Rental and leasing companies 
also are required to provide annual theft reports to the agency. In 
accordance with 49 CFR part 544.5, each insurer, rental and leasing 
company to which this regulation applies must submit a report annually 
not later than October 25, beginning with the calendar year for which 
they are required to report. The report would contain information for 
the calendar year three years previous to the year in which the report 
is filed. The report that was due by October 25, 2002 contains the 
required information for the 1999 calendar year. Interested persons may 
obtain a copy of individual insurer reports for CY 1999 by contacting 
the U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Management, Room PL-401, 
400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. [Docket hours are from 
10 am to 5 pm]. Requests should refer to Docket No. 2002-17376.
    The annual insurer reports provided under section 33112 are 
intended to aid in implementing the Theft Act and fulfilling the 
Department's requirements to report to the public the results of the 
insurer reports. The first annual insurer report, referred to as the 
Section 612 Report on Motor Vehicle Theft, was prepared by the agency 
and issued in December 1987. The report included theft and recovery 
data by vehicle type, make, line, and model which were tabulated by 
insurance companies and, rental and leasing companies. Comprehensive 
premium information for each of the reporting insurance companies was 
also included. This report, the fifteenth, discloses the same subject 
information and follows the same reporting format.
