Les Entreprises Michel Corbeil Inc., Receipt of Petition for 
Decision of Inconsequential Noncompliance

    Les Entreprises Michel Corbeil Inc. (Corbeil) has determined that 
certain vehicles that it produced in 1998 through 2005 do not comply 
with S9.3(c) of 49 CFR 571.111, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 
(FMVSS) No. 111, ``Rearview mirrors.'' Corbeil has filed an appropriate 
report pursuant to 49 CFR Part 573, ``Defect and Noncompliance 
Reports.''
    Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h), Corbeil has petitioned 
for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 
U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is 
inconsequential to motor vehicle safety.
    This notice of receipt of Corbeil's petition is published under 49 
U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or 
other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the petition.
    Affected are a total of approximately 246 Ford and GM chassis 
cutaway single and dual wheel school buses manufactured from January 5, 
1998 through February 15, 2005. S9.3(c) requires:

    Each school bus which has a mirror installed in compliance with 
S9.3(a) that has an average radius of curvature of less than 889 mm, 
as determined under S12, shall have a label visible to the seated 
driver. The label shall be printed in a type face and color that are 
clear and conspicuous. The label shall state the following: USE 
CROSS VIEW MIRRORS TO VIEW PEDESTRIANS WHILE BUS IS STOPPED. DO NOT 
USE THESE MIRRORS TO VIEW TRAFFIC WHILE BUS IS MOVING. IMAGES IN 
SUCH MIRRORS DO NOT ACCURATELY SHOW ANOTHER VEHICLE'S LOCATION.''

    The noncompliant school buses were produced without the required 
label.
    Corbeil indicates in its petition that the number of school buses 
that are noncompliant is an estimate. Corbeil explains, ``As we cannot 
establish any moment where this situation may have occurred, we have 
considered the NHTSA time frame from 1998 [when production began] to 
February 15, 2005 [when the noncompliance was corrected].'' Corbeil 
states that during this period, 8471 of the affected type of school 
buses were produced. Corbeil further states:

    A count was done within the ready-for-delivery bus yard. * * 
*From a quantity of 310 vehicles inspected, 9 vehicles were not 
provided with the label. * * *We have then extrapolated the recall 
population by [applying the ratio 9/310 or 2.9% to the population of 
8471].

    Corbeil believes that the noncompliance is inconsequential to motor 
vehicle safety and that no corrective action is warranted. Corbeil 
states that school bus drivers in general are instructed and aware of 
the use of these mirrors for pedestrian purposes only. Further, the 
petitioner asserts that a very small number of vehicles are affected, 
over a time period of eight years, and that a recall would cost 
approximately $10,000 Canadian due to the need to recall all 8471 
school buses produced from 1998 to 2005 to determine which do not have 
the label required by S9.3(c). Corbeil has corrected the problem.

arguments on the petition described above. Comments must refer to the 
docket and notice number cited at the beginning of this notice and be 
submitted by any of the following methods. Mail: Docket Management
