The central feature PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 of this program is the Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 49 CFR part 541. The standard specifies performance requirements for inscribing or affixing vehicle identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major original equipment and replacement parts of high-theft lines of passenger motor vehicles. The agency is required by 49 U.S.C. 33104(b)(4) to periodically obtain, from the most reliable source, accurate and timely theft data, and publish the data for review and comment. To fulfill the § 33104(b)(4) mandate, this document reports the preliminary theft data for CY 2003 the most recent calendar year for which data are available. In calculating the 2003 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same procedures it used in calculating the MY 2002 theft rates. (For 2002 theft data calculations, see 69 FR 53354, September 1, 2004). As in all previous reports, NHTSA’s data were based on information provided to the agency by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a governmental system that receives vehicle theft information from nearly 23,000 criminal justice agencies and other law enforcement authorities throughout the United States. The NCIC data also include reported thefts of selfinsured and uninsured vehicles, not all of which are reported to other data sources. The 2003 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2003 vehicles of that line stolen during calendar year 2003, by the total number of vehicles in that line manufactured for MY 2003, as reported by manufacturers to the Environmental Protection Agency. The preliminary 2003 theft data show a decrease in the vehicle theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2002. The preliminary theft rate for MY 2003 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2003 decreased to 1.84 thefts per thousand vehicles produced, a decrease of 26.1 percent from the rate of 2.49 thefts per thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2002 vehicles in CY 2002. For MY 2003 vehicles, out of a total of 217 vehicle lines, 21 lines had a theft rate higher than 3.5826 per thousand vehicles, the established median theft rate for MYs 1990/1991 (See 59 FR 12400, March 16, 1994). Of the 21 vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, 18 are passenger car lines, 2 are multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and one is a light-duty truck line. In Table I, NHTSA has tentatively ranked each of the MY 2003 vehicle lines in descending order of theft rate. E:\FR\FM\02MRP1.SGM 02MRP1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 40 / Wednesday, March 2, 2005 / Proposed Rules Public comment is sought on the accuracy of the data, including the data for the production volumes of individual vehicle lines.

SUMMARY: This document requests comments on data about passenger motor 
vehicle thefts that occurred in calendar year (CY) 2003 including theft 
rates for existing passenger motor vehicle lines manufactured in model 
year (MY) 2003. The preliminary theft data indicate that the vehicle 
theft rate for CY/MY 2003 vehicles (1.84 thefts per thousand vehicles) 
decreased by 26.1 percent from the theft rate for CY/MY 2002 vehicles 
(2.49 thefts per thousand vehicles).
    Publication of these data fulfills NHTSA's statutory obligation to 
periodically obtain accurate and timely theft data, and publish the 
information for review and comment.

number is (202) 366-0846. Her fax number is (202) 493-2290.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NHTSA administers a program for reducing 
motor vehicle theft. The central feature of this program is the Federal 
Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 49 CFR part 541. The standard 
specifies performance requirements for inscribing or affixing vehicle 
identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major original equipment and 
replacement parts of high-theft lines of passenger motor vehicles.
    The agency is required by 49 U.S.C. 33104(b)(4) to periodically 
obtain, from the most reliable source, accurate and timely theft data, 
and publish the data for review and comment. To fulfill the Sec.  
33104(b)(4) mandate, this document reports the preliminary theft data 
for CY 2003 the most recent calendar year for which data are available.
    In calculating the 2003 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same 
procedures it used in calculating the MY 2002 theft rates. (For 2002 
theft data calculations, see 69 FR 53354, September 1, 2004). As in all 
previous reports, NHTSA's data were based on information provided to 
the agency by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a governmental system that 
receives vehicle theft information from nearly 23,000 criminal justice 
agencies and other law enforcement authorities throughout the United 
States. The NCIC data also include reported thefts of self-insured and 
uninsured vehicles, not all of which are reported to other data 
sources. The 2003 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by 
dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2003 vehicles of that line 
stolen during calendar year 2003, by the total number of vehicles in 
that line manufactured for MY 2003, as reported by manufacturers to the 
Environmental Protection Agency.
    The preliminary 2003 theft data show a decrease in the vehicle 
theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2002. 
The preliminary theft rate for MY 2003 passenger vehicles stolen in 
calendar year 2003 decreased to 1.84 thefts per thousand vehicles 
produced, a decrease of 26.1 percent from the rate of 2.49 thefts per 
thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2002 vehicles in CY 2002. For MY 
2003 vehicles, out of a total of 217 vehicle lines, 21 lines had a 
theft rate higher than 3.5826 per thousand vehicles, the established 
median theft rate for MYs 1990/1991 (See 59 FR 12400, March 16, 1994). 
Of the 21 vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, 18 are 
passenger car lines, 2 are multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and 
one is a light-duty truck line.
    In Table I, NHTSA has tentatively ranked each of the MY 2003 
vehicle lines in descending order of theft rate.

[[Page 10067]]

Public comment is sought on the accuracy of the data, including the 
data for the production volumes of individual vehicle lines.
    Comments must not exceed 15 pages in length (49 CFR 553.21). 
Attachments may be appended to these submissions without regard to the 
15 page limit. This limitation is intended to encourage commenters to 
detail their primary arguments in a concise fashion.
    If a commenter wishes to submit certain information under a claim 
of confidentiality, three copies of the complete submission, including 
purportedly confidential business information, should be submitted to 
the Chief Counsel, NHTSA, at the street address given above, and two 
copies from which the purportedly confidential information has been 
deleted should be submitted to Dockets. A request for confidentiality 
should be accompanied by a cover letter setting forth the information 
specified in the agency's confidential business information regulation. 
49 CFR part 512.
    All comments received before the close of business on the comment 
closing date indicated above for this document will be considered, and 
will be available for examination in the docket at the above address 
both before and after that date. To the extent possible, comments filed 
after the closing date will also be considered. Comments on this 
document will be available for inspection in the docket. NHTSA will 
continue to file relevant information as it becomes available for 
inspection in the docket after the closing date, and it is recommended 
that interested persons continue to examine the docket for new 
material.
    Those persons desiring to be notified upon receipt of their 
comments in the rules docket should enclose a self-addressed, stamped 
postcard in the envelope with their comments. Upon receiving the 
comments, the docket supervisor will return the postcard by mail.
