Final Theft Data; Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 46092-46097 [05-15689]

Download as PDF 46092 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 152 / Tuesday, August 9, 2005 / Rules and Regulations significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4). This rule also does not have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action also does not have Federalism implications because it does not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action merely approves a state rule implementing a Federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. In reviewing SIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. In this context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the State to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to disapprove a SIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a SIP submission, to use VCS in place of a SIP submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the Clean Air Act. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. section 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required VerDate jul<14>2003 15:06 Aug 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. section 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by October 11, 2005. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

The final 2003 theft data show a decrease in the vehicle theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2002. The final 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, two are multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and one is a light-duty truck line. The MY 2003 theft rate reduction is consistent with the general decreasing trend of theft rates over the past ten years as indicated by Figure 1. The agency believes that the decrease could be the result of several factors including the increased use of standard antitheft devices (i.e., immobilizers), vehicle partsmarking, increased and improved prosecution efforts by law enforcement organizations and, increased public awareness measures have contributed to the overall reduction in vehicle thefts. On Wednesday, May 2, 2005, NHTSA published the preliminary theft rates for CY 2003 passenger motor vehicles in the Federal Register (70 FR 10066). The agency tentatively ranked each of the MY 2003 vehicle lines in descending order of theft rate. The public was requested to comment on the accuracy of the data and to provide final production figures for individual vehicle lines. The agency used written SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate jul<14>2003 15:06 Aug 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\09AUR1.SGM 09AUR1 ER09AU05.008</GPH> 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 and 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 this statutory mandate, NHTSA has published theft data annually beginning with MYs 1983/84. Continuing to fulfill the § 33104(b)(4) mandate, this document reports the final 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 NHTSA by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a government 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 Ms. Deborah Mazyck, Office of International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Mazyck’s telephone number is (202) 366–0846. Her fax number is (202) 493– 2290. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 46094 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 152 / Tuesday, August 9, 2005 / Rules and Regulations comments to make the necessary adjustments to its data. The agency received a written comment from American Honda (Honda). In its comments, Honda informed the agency that there was an error in the published production volume for the Honda S2000 vehicle line. However, upon further review by Honda, it was confirmed that the reported production volume was correct. Therefore, the published production volume as reported to the agency will remain unchanged. The following list represents NHTSA’s final calculation of theft rates for all 2003 passenger motor vehicle lines. This list is intended to inform the public of calendar year 2003 motor vehicle thefts of model year 2003 vehicles and does not have any effect on the obligations of regulated parties under 49 U.S.C. Chapter 331, Theft Prevention.

ACTION: Temporary rule; prohibition of retention. AGENCY: NMFS is prohibiting retention of Pacific Ocean perch in the West Yakutat District of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). NMFS is requiring that catch of Pacific Ocean perch in this area be treated in the same manner as prohibited species and discarded at sea with a minimum of injury. This action is necessary because the Pacific Ocean perch 2005 total allowable catch (TAC) in this area has been reached. SUMMARY: VerDate jul<14>2003 15:06 Aug 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), August 4, 2005, until 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Josh Keaton, 907–586–7228. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the GOA exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan for the Groundfish Fishery of the Gulf of Alaska (FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and CFR part 679. The 2005 TAC of Pacific Ocean perch in the West Yakutat District of the GOA is 841 metric tons as established by the 2005 and 2006 harvest specifications for groundfish of the GOA (70 FR 8958, February 24, 2005). In accordance with § 679.20(d)(2), the Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS, has determined that the Pacific Ocean perch TAC in the West Yakutat District of the GOA has been reached. Therefore, NMFS is requiring that further catches of Pacific Ocean perch in the West Yakutat District of the GOA be treated as prohibited species in accordance with § 679.21(b). DATES: Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and would delay the prohibition of retention of Pacific Ocean perch in the West Yakutat District of the GOA. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public comment. This action is required by § 679.20 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: August 3, 2005. Alan D.

Final Theft Data; Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 
Department of Transportation.

ACTION: Publication of final theft data.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document publishes the final data on thefts of model year 
(MY) 2003 passenger motor vehicles that occurred in calendar year (CY) 
2003. The final 2003 theft data indicate a decrease in the vehicle 
theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2003. The final theft rate for MY 2003 
passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2003 (1.84 thefts per 
thousand vehicles) decreased by 26.1 percent from the theft rate for 
CY/MY 2002 (2.49 thefts per thousand vehicles) when compared to the 
theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2002. 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.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Deborah Mazyck, Office of 
International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 400 
Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Mazyck's telephone 
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 and 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 this statutory 
mandate, NHTSA has published theft data annually beginning with MYs 
1983/84. Continuing to fulfill the Sec.  33104(b)(4) mandate, this 
document reports the final 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 
NHTSA by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a government 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 to the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA).
    The final 2003 theft data show a decrease in the vehicle theft rate 
when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2002. The final 
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, two 
are multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and one is a light-duty truck 
line.
    The MY 2003 theft rate reduction is consistent with the general 
decreasing trend of theft rates over the past ten years as indicated by 
Figure 1.
[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR09AU05.008

    The agency believes that the decrease could be the result of 
several factors including the increased use of standard antitheft 
devices (i.e., immobilizers), vehicle partsmarking, increased and 
improved prosecution efforts by law enforcement organizations and, 
increased public awareness measures have contributed to the overall 
reduction in vehicle thefts.
    On Wednesday, May 2, 2005, NHTSA published the preliminary theft 
rates for CY 2003 passenger motor vehicles in the Federal Register (70 
FR 10066). The agency tentatively ranked each of the MY 2003 vehicle 
lines in descending order of theft rate. The public was requested to 
comment on the accuracy of the data and to provide final production 
figures for individual vehicle lines. The agency used written

[[Page 46094]]

comments to make the necessary adjustments to its data.
    The agency received a written comment from American Honda (Honda). 
In its comments, Honda informed the agency that there was an error in 
the published production volume for the Honda S2000 vehicle line. 
However, upon further review by Honda, it was confirmed that the 
reported production volume was correct. Therefore, the published 
production volume as reported to the agency will remain unchanged.
    The following list represents NHTSA's final calculation of theft 
rates for all 2003 passenger motor vehicle lines. This list is intended 
to inform the public of calendar year 2003 motor vehicle thefts of 
model year 2003 vehicles and does not have any effect on the 
obligations of regulated parties under 49 U.S.C. Chapter 331, Theft 
Prevention.
