Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 192 / Thursday, October 4, 2007 / Notices following vehicles did not include either the installation instructions or the instructions for the proper use and maintenance of the replacement seat belt assemblies. This fails to comply with both paragraph S4.1(k) and paragraph S4.1(l) of the standard: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 1992–1995 MY Mazda 929, delivered from 1991 to 2007 1990–2002 MY Mazda 626, delivered from 1989 to 2007 1994–1995 MY Mazda MX–3, delivered from 1993 to 2007 1994–2007 MY Mazda MX–5, delivered from 1993 to 2007 1988–1997 MY Mazda MX–6, delivered from 1987 to 2007 1993–1995 MY Mazda RX–7, delivered from 1992 to 2007 1999–2003 MY Mazda Protege, delivered from 1998 to 2007 2001–2008 MY Mazda Tribute, delivered from 2000 to 2007 2004–2007 MY Mazda Mazda6, delivered from 2003 to 2007 2006–2007 MY Mazda 5, delivered from 2005 to 2007 2007 MY Mazda CX–9, delivered from 2006 to 2007 2007 MY Mazda B-Series Truck, delivered from 2006 to 2007 And finally, all remaining replacement seat belt assemblies produced for use in the United States and its territories did not include the instructions for the proper use and maintenance of the replacement seat belt assemblies. This fails to comply with S4.1(l) of the standard. MAZDA makes the argument that the MAZDA parts ordering system used by Mazda dealers clearly identifies the correct service seat belt components for any given model/model year seat position combination. The parts are unique to each belt and are designed to assemble properly only in their intended application. When ordering Mazda replacement seat belt parts, the dealer must refer to the Mazda parts catalog to identify the ordering part number with the information on the specific vehicle model type, location and model year. Each replacement seat belt assembly is packaged individually with a specific part number label to ensure shipping the correct parts. Then, the dealer routinely checks to confirm that the part received matches the one ordered. Given the ordering system and process, the dealers could select, order, and obtain the correct parts. Also, installation instructions for seat belts are readily available in the Mazda workshop manuals and on the Internet. Therefore, the seat belt parts can be successfully installed with the information already available even though installation instructions did not VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:20 Oct 03, 2007 Jkt 214001 accompany the replacement seat belt assemblies. MAZDA further argues that since the instruction for proper use and maintenance is described in the owner’s manual which is installed in the vehicle, incorrect usage and maintenance by the vehicle owner is highly unlikely. MAZDA is not aware of any customer or field reports of service seat belt assemblies being incorrectly installed in the subject applications as a result of installation instructions not accompanying the service part. MAZDA also stated that it is not aware of any reports requesting installation instructions, which it believed to be related to the noncompliances. Upon discovery of the subject noncompliance, MAZDA took action to ensure that all replacement seat belt assemblies shipped in the future are packaged with the required installation instructions. MAZDA has also corrected all the replacement seat belt assemblies in the inventory for shipment to dealers. In summation, MAZDA states that it has corrected the problem that caused these errors so that they will not be repeated in future production and that it believes that because the noncompliances are inconsequential to motor vehicle safety that no corrective action is warranted.

The Line consists of four end-toend line segments consisting of the Tintic Industrial Lead from milepost 5.52 to milepost 26.00, the West Tintic Industrial Lead from milepost 26.00 to milepost 27.23, the Goshen Valley Branch from milepost 0.0 to milepost 3.80 (equation milepost 2.89 = milepost 2.98), and the Iron King Branch from milepost 0.0 to milepost 2.15, extending for a total distance of 27.57 miles in Utah County, Utah. The Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Codes 84626, 84633, and 84651, and includes a station at Elberta. The Line does contain federally granted rights-of-way.1 Any documentation in UP’s possession will be made available promptly to those requesting it. The applicant’s entire case for discontinuance (case-in-chief) was filed with the application. The Line has appeared on UP’s system diagram map in category 1 since July 7, 2003. The interest of railroad employees will be protected by the conditions set 1 The Line contains several segments of federally granted rights-of-way that are reversionary and that collectively account for approximately 50% of the property affected by the proposed discontinuance.

Any interested person may file with the Board written comments concerning the proposed discontinuance or protests (including the protestant’s entire opposition case) by October 29, 2007. Because this is a discontinuance proceeding, and not an abandonment, trail use/rail banking and public use requests are not appropriate. Also, only offers of financial assistance (OFA) under 49 U.S.C. 10904 to subsidize (not purchase) the line will be entertained. Persons opposing the discontinuance who wish to participate actively and fully in the process should file a protest. Persons who oppose the discontinuance but who do not wish to participate fully in the process by submitting verified statements of witnesses containing detailed evidence should file comments. Persons seeking information concerning the filing of protests should refer to 49 CFR 1152.25. In addition, a commenting party, or protestant may provide: (i) An OFA to subsidize rail service under 49 U.S.C. 10904 (due 120 days after the application is filed or 10 days after the application is granted by the Board, whichever occurs sooner); and (ii) recommended provisions for protection of the interests of employees. The line sought to be discontinued will be available for subsidy for continued rail use, if the Board decides to permit the discontinuance, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations (49 U.S.C. 10904 and 49 CFR 1152.27). Each OFA must be accompanied by a $1,300 filing fee. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). No subsidy arrangement approved under 49 U.S.C. 10904 shall remain in effect for more than 1 year unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties (49 U.S.C. 10904(f)(4)(B)). Applicant will promptly provide upon request to each interested party an estimate of the subsidy required to keep the line in operation. The carrier’s representative to whom inquiries may be made concerning subsidy terms is set forth below. Any filing in response to this notice must refer to STB Docket No. AB–33 (Sub-No. 209) and must be submitted either via the Board’s e-filing format or in the traditional paper format. Any person using e-filing should attach a document and otherwise comply with the instructions found on the Board’s Web site at http://www.stb.dot.gov at the ‘‘E-FILING’’ link. Any person submitting a filing in the traditional paper format should send an original and 10 paper copies of the filing (and also an electronic version) with a certificate of E:\FR\FM\04OCN1.SGM 04OCN1
