ACTION: Publication of 2008 final theft data. AGENCY: This document publishes the final data on thefts of model year (MY) 2008 passenger motor vehicles that occurred in calendar year (CY) 2008. The final 2008 theft data indicated a SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\14JAR1.SGM 14JAR1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 10 / Friday, January 14, 2011 / Rules and Regulations srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with RULES decrease in the vehicle theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2008. The final theft rate for MY 2008 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2008 is 1.69 thefts per thousand vehicles, a decrease of 8.65 percent from the rate of 1.85 thefts per thousand in 2007. 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. DATES: Effective date: January 14, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Deborah Mazyck, Office of International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Mazyck’s telephone number is (202) 366–0846. Her fax number is (202) 493– 2990. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:19 Jan 13, 2011 Jkt 223001 statutory mandate, NHTSA has published theft data annually beginning with MYs 1983/84. Continuing to fulfill the section 33104(b)(4) mandate, this document reports the final theft data for CY 2008, the most recent calendar year for which data are available. In calculating the 2008 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same procedures it used in calculating the MY 2007 theft rates. (For 2007 theft data calculations, see 75 FR 47720, August 9, 2010). 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 2008 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2008 vehicles of that line stolen during calendar year 2008 by the total number of vehicles in that line manufactured for MY 2008, as reported to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The final 2008 theft data show a decrease in the vehicle theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2599 in CY/MY 2007. The final theft rate for MY 2008 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2008 decreased to 1.69 thefts per thousand vehicles produced, a decrease of 8.65 percent from the rate of 1.85 thefts per thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2007 vehicles in CY 2007. For MY 2008 vehicles, out of a total of 241 vehicle lines, 17 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 17 vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, 14 are passenger car lines, three are multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and none are light-duty truck lines. A historical review of the 5-, 10- and 15-year theft trends show a substantial decrease in the vehicle theft rate when comparing the 2008 theft rate (1.69 thefts per thousand vehicles) to MY/ CY’s 1993, 1998 and 2003 theft rates. The 2008 rate is 57.54 percent lower than the CY/MY 1993 rate (3.98 thefts per thousand vehicles), 33.46 percent lower than the CY/MY 1998 rate (2.54 thefts per thousand vehicles) and 8.15 percent below the CY/MY 2003 rate (1.84 thefts per thousand vehicles). Overall as indicated by Figure 1, theft rates have continued to indicate a decreasing trend since CY/MY 1993, with periods of very moderate increases from one year to the next. E:\FR\FM\14JAR1.SGM 14JAR1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 10 / Friday, January 14, 2011 / Rules and Regulations The agency believes that the theft rate reduction could be the result of several factors including the increased use of standard antitheft devices (i.e., immobilizers), vehicle parts marking, increased and improved prosecution efforts by law enforcement organizations and increased public awareness measures. On Tuesday, August 17, 2010, NHTSA published the preliminary theft rates for CY 2008 passenger motor vehicles in the Federal Register (75 FR 5073). The agency tentatively ranked each of the MY 2008 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 comments to make the necessary adjustments to its data. As a result of the adjustments, some of the final theft rates and rankings of vehicle lines changed from those published in the August 2010 notice. The agency received written comments from Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (VW) and Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan). Volkswagen informed the agency that the terms ‘‘Quattro’’ and ‘‘Avant’’ should be deleted from the Volkswagen and Audi vehicle line nomenclature. The Quattro and Avant nomenclature are used in EPA data to identify the 4-wheel drive system as the Quattro or the station wagon model as the Avant. VW stated that the Quattro and Avant are VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:19 Jan 13, 2011 Jkt 223001 not part of the vehicle line name and therefore, are not relevant to the theft data listing. As a result of this comment, Quattro and Avant have been deleted from the vehicle line nomenclature for the Volkswagen and Audi vehicle lines. Therefore, the entry for the Audi A6/A6 Quattro/S6/S6 Avant has been changed to the Audi A6 and the Audi S6. The Audi A8/A8 Quattro entry is now listed as the Audi A8, the Audi S8/S8 Quattro entry is now listed as the Audi S8, the Audi A3/A3 Quattro entry is now listed as the Audi A3, the Audi A6/A6 Quattro/S6/S6 Avant entry is now listed as the Audi A6 and the Audi S6, and the Audi A4/A5//A4/A5 Quattro//S4/S4 Avant entry is now listed as the Audi A4/A5 and the Audi S4/S5. The final theft list has been revised to reflect these changes. Additionally, Volkswagen requested that its performance-related vehicle models be listed separately from its base model vehicle lines. In its comments, VW informed the agency that the production volumes for the Audi S8, Audi A6, Audi S6, Audi A8, Volkswagen R32, Volkswagen Jetta/ GLI, the Volkswagen Passat and the Audi TT are incorrect. In response to this comment, the production volume for the Audi S8, Audi A6, Audi S6, Audi A8, Volkswagen R32, Volkswagen Jetta/GLI, the Volkswagen Passat and the Audi TT have been corrected and the final theft list has been revised accordingly. As a result of the PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 correction, the Audi S8 previously ranked No. 40 with a theft rate of 2.5974 remains ranked No. 40 with a theft rate of 2.5907, the Audi A6 previously ranked No. 86 with a theft rate of 1.4414 is now ranked No. No. 92 with a theft rate of 1.3990, the Audi S6 previously ranked No. 86 with a theft rate of 1.4414 is now ranked No. 48 with a theft rate of 1.3990, the Audi A8 previously ranked No. 141 with a theft rate of 0.8478 is now ranked No. 92 with a theft rate of 1.3990, the Volkswagen R32 previously ranked No. 60 with a theft rate of 1.8004 is now ranked No. 61 with a theft rate of 1.7996, the Volksgwagen Jetta/GLI previously ranked No. 75 with a theft rate of 1.5822 is now ranked No. 76 with a theft rate of 1.5821, the Volkswagen Passat previously ranked No. 144 with a theft rate of 0.8198 is now ranked No. 147 with a theft rate of 0.8197, and the Audi TT previously ranked No. 186 with a theft rate of 0.5048 is now ranked No. 188 with a theft rate of 2.5907. In its comments, Nissan requested that the agency confirm the number of thefts for the Nissan Pathfinder. Reanalysis of the preliminary theft data provided for the Nissan Pathfinder revealed an error in the production volume for the line. Therefore, the agency has corrected the production volume reported for the Nissan Pathfinder. As a result of the reanalysis, the Nissan Pathfinder previously ranked No. 13 with a theft rate of 4.5523 is now E:\FR\FM\14JAR1.SGM 14JAR1 er14ja11.002</GPH> srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with RULES 2600 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 10 / Friday, January 14, 2011 / Rules and Regulations ranked No. 30 with a theft rate of 3.0085. Further reanalysis of the theft rate data revealed that the August 17, 2010 publication of preliminary theft data did not include the Toyota Matrix. NHTSA is correcting the final theft data to include the thefts and production volumes for the Toyota Matrix. As a result of this correction, the Toyota Matrix, previously not listed, is ranked No. 79 with a theft rate of 1.5487. As a result of changes in the theft ranking, reanalysis of the theft rate data revealed that the number of vehicle lines reported with a theft rate higher than 3.5826 was incorrect. The publication of preliminary theft data for CY 2008 erroneously reported that there were 14 passenger cars, four multipurpose passenger vehicle lines and no light-duty truck lines with theft rates higher than 3.5826. NHTSA is correcting the final theft data to reflect that 14 passenger car lines, three 2601 multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and no light truck lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826. The following list represents NHTSA’s final calculation of theft rates for all 2008 passenger motor vehicle lines. This list is intended to inform the public of calendar year 2008 motor vehicle thefts of model year 2008 vehicles and does not have any effect on the obligations of regulated parties under 49 U.S.C. Chapter 331, Theft Prevention.

[Docket No. NHTSA-2010-0098]


Final Theft Data; Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard

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

ACTION: Publication of 2008 final theft data.

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

SUMMARY: This document publishes the final data on thefts of model year 
(MY) 2008 passenger motor vehicles that occurred in calendar year (CY) 
2008. The final 2008 theft data indicated a

[[Page 2599]]

decrease in the vehicle theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2008. The final 
theft rate for MY 2008 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2008 
is 1.69 thefts per thousand vehicles, a decrease of 8.65 percent from 
the rate of 1.85 thefts per thousand in 2007. 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.

DATES: Effective date: January 14, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Deborah Mazyck, Office of 
International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 1200 
New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Mazyck's telephone 
number is (202) 366-0846. Her fax number is (202) 493-2990.

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 section 33104(b)(4) mandate, this 
document reports the final theft data for CY 2008, the most recent 
calendar year for which data are available.
    In calculating the 2008 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same 
procedures it used in calculating the MY 2007 theft rates. (For 2007 
theft data calculations, see 75 FR 47720, August 9, 2010). 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 2008 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by 
dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2008 vehicles of that line 
stolen during calendar year 2008 by the total number of vehicles in 
that line manufactured for MY 2008, as reported to the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA).
    The final 2008 theft data show a decrease in the vehicle theft rate 
when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2007. The final 
theft rate for MY 2008 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2008 
decreased to 1.69 thefts per thousand vehicles produced, a decrease of 
8.65 percent from the rate of 1.85 thefts per thousand vehicles 
experienced by MY 2007 vehicles in CY 2007.
    For MY 2008 vehicles, out of a total of 241 vehicle lines, 17 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 17 vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 
3.5826, 14 are passenger car lines, three are multipurpose passenger 
vehicle lines, and none are light-duty truck lines.
    A historical review of the 5-, 10- and 15-year theft trends show a 
substantial decrease in the vehicle theft rate when comparing the 2008 
theft rate (1.69 thefts per thousand vehicles) to MY/CY's 1993, 1998 
and 2003 theft rates. The 2008 rate is 57.54 percent lower than the CY/
MY 1993 rate (3.98 thefts per thousand vehicles), 33.46 percent lower 
than the CY/MY 1998 rate (2.54 thefts per thousand vehicles) and 8.15 
percent below the CY/MY 2003 rate (1.84 thefts per thousand vehicles). 
Overall as indicated by Figure 1, theft rates have continued to 
indicate a decreasing trend since CY/MY 1993, with periods of very 
moderate increases from one year to the next.

    The agency believes that the theft rate reduction could be the 
result of several factors including the increased use of standard 
antitheft devices (i.e., immobilizers), vehicle parts marking, 
increased and improved prosecution efforts by law enforcement 
organizations and increased public awareness measures.
    On Tuesday, August 17, 2010, NHTSA published the preliminary theft 
rates for CY 2008 passenger motor vehicles in the Federal Register (75 
FR 5073). The agency tentatively ranked each of the MY 2008 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 comments 
to make the necessary adjustments to its data. As a result of the 
adjustments, some of the final theft rates and rankings of vehicle 
lines changed from those published in the August 2010 notice. The 
agency received written comments from Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. 
(VW) and Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan).
    Volkswagen informed the agency that the terms ``Quattro'' and 
``Avant'' should be deleted from the Volkswagen and Audi vehicle line 
nomenclature. The Quattro and Avant nomenclature are used in EPA data 
to identify the 4-wheel drive system as the Quattro or the station 
wagon model as the Avant. VW stated that the Quattro and Avant are not 
part of the vehicle line name and therefore, are not relevant to the 
theft data listing. As a result of this comment, Quattro and Avant have 
been deleted from the vehicle line nomenclature for the Volkswagen and 
Audi vehicle lines. Therefore, the entry for the Audi A6/A6 Quattro/S6/
S6 Avant has been changed to the Audi A6 and the Audi S6. The Audi A8/
A8 Quattro entry is now listed as the Audi A8, the Audi S8/S8 Quattro 
entry is now listed as the Audi S8, the Audi A3/A3 Quattro entry is now 
listed as the Audi A3, the Audi A6/A6 Quattro/S6/S6 Avant entry is now 
listed as the Audi A6 and the Audi S6, and the Audi A4/A5//A4/A5 
Quattro//S4/S4 Avant entry is now listed as the Audi A4/A5 and the Audi 
S4/S5. The final theft list has been revised to reflect these changes. 
Additionally, Volkswagen requested that its performance-related vehicle 
models be listed separately from its base model vehicle lines.
    In its comments, VW informed the agency that the production volumes 
for the Audi S8, Audi A6, Audi S6, Audi A8, Volkswagen R32, Volkswagen 
Jetta/GLI, the Volkswagen Passat and the Audi TT are incorrect. In 
response to this comment, the production volume for the Audi S8, Audi 
A6, Audi S6, Audi A8, Volkswagen R32, Volkswagen Jetta/GLI, the 
Volkswagen Passat and the Audi TT have been corrected and the final 
theft list has been revised accordingly. As a result of the correction, 
the Audi S8 previously ranked No. 40 with a theft rate of 2.5974 
remains ranked No. 40 with a theft rate of 2.5907, the Audi A6 
previously ranked No. 86 with a theft rate of 1.4414 is now ranked No. 
No. 92 with a theft rate of 1.3990, the Audi S6 previously ranked No. 
86 with a theft rate of 1.4414 is now ranked No. 48 with a theft rate 
of 1.3990, the Audi A8 previously ranked No. 141 with a theft rate of 
0.8478 is now ranked No. 92 with a theft rate of 1.3990, the Volkswagen 
R32 previously ranked No. 60 with a theft rate of 1.8004 is now ranked 
No. 61 with a theft rate of 1.7996, the Volksgwagen Jetta/GLI 
previously ranked No. 75 with a theft rate of 1.5822 is now ranked No. 
76 with a theft rate of 1.5821, the Volkswagen Passat previously ranked 
No. 144 with a theft rate of 0.8198 is now ranked No. 147 with a theft 
rate of 0.8197, and the Audi TT previously ranked No. 186 with a theft 
rate of 0.5048 is now ranked No. 188 with a theft rate of 2.5907.
    In its comments, Nissan requested that the agency confirm the 
number of thefts for the Nissan Pathfinder. Reanalysis of the 
preliminary theft data provided for the Nissan Pathfinder revealed an 
error in the production volume for the line. Therefore, the agency has 
corrected the production volume reported for the Nissan Pathfinder. As 
a result of the reanalysis, the Nissan Pathfinder previously ranked No. 
13 with a theft rate of 4.5523 is now

ranked No. 30 with a theft rate of 3.0085.
    Further reanalysis of the theft rate data revealed that the August 
17, 2010 publication of preliminary theft data did not include the 
Toyota Matrix. NHTSA is correcting the final theft data to include the 
thefts and production volumes for the Toyota Matrix. As a result of 
this correction, the Toyota Matrix, previously not listed, is ranked 
No. 79 with a theft rate of 1.5487.
    As a result of changes in the theft ranking, reanalysis of the 
theft rate data revealed that the number of vehicle lines reported with 
a theft rate higher than 3.5826 was incorrect. The publication of 
preliminary theft data for CY 2008 erroneously reported that there were 
14 passenger cars, four multipurpose passenger vehicle lines and no 
light-duty truck lines with theft rates higher than 3.5826. NHTSA is 
correcting the final theft data to reflect that 14 passenger car lines, 
three multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and no light truck lines 
with a theft rate higher than 3.5826.
    The following list represents NHTSA's final calculation of theft 
rates for all 2008 passenger motor vehicle lines. This list is intended 
to inform the public of calendar year 2008 motor vehicle thefts of 
model year 2008 vehicles and does not have any effect on the 
obligations of regulated parties under 49 U.S.C. Chapter 331, Theft 
Prevention.
