ACTION: Denial of motor vehicle defect petition. AGENCY: This document denies a March 2, 2010 petition from Fred and Susan Maynard of Williamsburg, Virginia, requesting that the agency open an investigation into the ‘‘air bag systems failure’’ that they experienced in their model year (MY) 2008 Toyota Corolla. After reviewing the petition and other information, NHTSA has concluded that further investigation of MY 2008 Toyota Corolla vehicles is unlikely to result in a determination SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00130 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that a safety-related defect exists. The agency accordingly denies the petition. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Michael Lee, Vehicle Integrity Division, Office of Defects Investigation, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590. Telephone: (202) 366–5236. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Alleged Problem The petitioners allege that the frontal air bags in their Toyota Corolla failed to deploy during a crash into a deer, while the vehicle was traveling at 55 mph. The petitioners believe the vehicle is defective because the air bags did not deploy during the crash. As described by the petitioners, neither the driver nor the front passenger sustained a significant injury in the crash. It appears that the deer impacted the front left area of the vehicle, causing the hood and left front fender to be displaced rearward.1 This resulted in deformation to the soft structural material (sheet metal) above the vehicle sub-frame. Air Bag Deployments There are a number of important aspects to vehicle design. One is the vehicle structure, including crush zones. Another is the vehicle’s air bag system, which by design discriminates between crashes that warrant air bag deployment and those that do not. To do this, current air bag systems sense vehicle deceleration, defined as the change in vehicle speed over a given period of time, then through the use of a microprocessor makes a careful assessment of the deceleration.2 Overall, the objective of the air bag system is to prevent injuries and deaths in crashes. In a minor crash, an air bag deployment may not be warranted, and in fact, may present an additional hazard to the occupants. Therefore, the system may not initiate air bag deployments in minor crashes. Due to the very low mass of a deer relative to a Toyota Corolla and the fact that the impact occurred above the vehicle’s sub-frame, it appears that in this case, the deer impact did not slow 1 This is based on an assessment of the vehicle damage shown in a photograph provided by the petitioners. 2 For each model of light vehicle, the decision of whether or not to deploy the front air bags is based on two deceleration thresholds; a lower threshold below which the air bags must not deploy, and a slightly higher threshold above which the air bags must deploy. This results in a narrow range of deceleration between the lower and upper thresholds where the air bags, by design, may or may not deploy. This range is carefully chosen by the vehicle manufacturer so as to meet all regulatory requirements as well as minimize occupant hazard due to air bag deployment. E:\FR\FM\17AUN1.SGM 17AUN1
