Office of Hazardous Materials Safety; Notice of Application for Exemptions, 12782-12784 [05-5031]

Download as PDF 12782 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 49 / Tuesday, March 15, 2005 / Notices were 149 reported theft for 1997 compared to 500 reported thefts in 1995. As part of its submission, Ford also provided a Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) Injury, Collision & Theft Losses publication, dated September 2004, which evaluated the 2002–2003 Ford Thunderbird models equipped with the SecuriLock device. On a scale where one hundred (100) represents the average result for all cars in each loss category, the results as reported by HLDI indicated an average theft loss of eightyseven convertible Thunderbirds over a two model year period. Results are based on the loss experience of 2001– 2003 models from their first sales through 2004. HLDI loss results for 2001–2003 models are stated in relative terms. Since the reintroduction of the Ford Thunderbird equipped with the SecuriLock anti-theft device and Perimeter alarm system as standard equipment, it has seen a very low theft rate. Ford also presented information from NHTSA’s Final Theft Data report (69 FR 53354, September 1, 2004) on thefts of 2002 model year passenger motor vehicles that occurred in calendar year 2002. The report showed the Ford Thunderbird having only fourteen thefts out of a production of 28,639 vehicles for the 2002 model year, with a theft rate of 0.4888. Additionally, Ford stated that its SecuriLock device has been demonstrated to various insurance companies, and as a result AAA Michigan and State Farm now give an antitheft discount for all Ford vehicles equipped with the SecuriLock device. On the basis of comparison, Ford has concluded that the antitheft device proposed for its vehicle line is no less effective than those devices in the lines for which NHTSA has granted full exemptions from the parts-marking requirements. Based on the evidence submitted by Ford, the agency believes that the antitheft device for the Ford Thunderbird vehicle line is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the parts-marking requirements of the theft prevention standard (49 CFR part 541). The agency concludes that the device will provide the types of performance listed in 49 CFR 543.6(a)(3): Promoting activation; attracting attention to the efforts of unauthorized persons to enter or operate a vehicle by means other than a key; preventing defeat or circumvention of the device by VerDate jul<14>2003 15:31 Mar 14, 2005 Jkt 205001 unauthorized persons; preventing operation of the vehicle by unauthorized entrants; and ensuring the reliability and durability of the device. As required by 49 U.S.C. 33106 and 49 CFR 543.6(a)(4) and (5), the agency finds that Ford has provided adequate reasons for its belief that the antitheft device will reduce and deter theft. This conclusion is based on the information Ford provided about its antitheft device. For the foregoing reasons, the agency hereby grants in full Ford Motor Company’s petition for an exemption for the MY 2006 Ford Thunderbird vehicle line from the parts-marking requirements of 49 CFR part 541. If Ford decides not to use the exemption for this line, it must formally notify the agency, and, thereafter, must fully mark the line as required by 49 CFR 541.5 and 541.6 (marking of major component parts and replacement parts). NHTSA notes that if Ford wishes in the future to modify the device on which this exemption is based, the company may have to submit a petition to modify the exemption. Section 543.7(d) states that a part 543 exemption applies only to vehicles that belong to a line exempted under this part and equipped with the antitheft device on which the line’s exemption is based. Further, § 543.9(c)(2) provides for the submission of petitions to modify an exemption to permit the use of an antitheft device similar to but differing from the one specified in that exemption. The agency wishes to minimize the administrative burden that § 543.9(c)(2) could place on exempted vehicle manufacturers and itself. The agency did not intend in drafting part 543 to require the submission of a modification petition for every change to the components or design of an antitheft device. The significance of many such changes could be de minimis. Therefore, NHTSA suggests that if the manufacturer contemplates making any changes, the effects of which might be characterized as de minimis, it should consult the agency before preparing and submitting a petition to modify.
