[FR Doc. 2011–22025 Filed 8–26–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–57–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION National Highway Traffic Safety Administration [Docket No. NHTSA–2011–0040; Notice 1] Forest River, Inc., Receipt of Petition for Decision of Inconsequential Noncompliance Forest River, Inc. (Forest River),1 has determined that approximately 2,741 model years 2009–2011 R–Pod travel trailers that it manufactured from October 27, 2008 through November 30, 2010, fail to meet the requirements of paragraph S5.1.1 of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment. Forest River has filed an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports, dated December 14, 2010. Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) (see implementing rule at 49 CFR part 556), Forest River has petitioned for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. chapter 301 on the basis that 1 Forest River, Inc., is a manufacturer of motor vehicles and is organized under the laws of the state of Indiana. PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53715 this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. This notice of receipt of Forest River’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. Forest River estimates that a total of approximately 2,741 model year 2009– 2011 R–Pod model travel trailers are affected, of which 2,697 were manufactured in Forest River’s Surveyor Division plant in Goshen, Indiana and 44 were manufactured in its Surveyor Division plant in Dallas, Oregon. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, these provisions only apply to the 2,741 2 vehicles that have already passed from the manufacturer to an owner, purchaser, or dealer. Paragraph S5.1.1 of FMVSS No. 108 requires in pertinent part: S5.1 Required motor vehicle lighting equipment. S5.1.1 Except as provided in succeeding paragraphs of this S5.1.1, each vehicle shall be equipped with at least the number of lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment specified in Tables I and III and S7, as applicable. Required equipment shall be designed to conform to the SAE Standards or Recommended Practices referenced in those tables. Table I applies to multipurpose passenger vehicles, trucks, trailers, and buses, 80 or more inches in overall width. Table III applies to passenger cars and motorcycles and to multipurpose passenger vehicles, trucks, trailers, and buses, less than 80 inches in overall width * * * 2 Forest River’s petition, which was filed under 49 CFR part 556, requests an agency decision to exempt Forest River as a vehicle manufacturer from the notification and recall responsibilities of 49 CFR part 573 for the 2,741 affected vehicles. However, the agency cannot relieve Forest River distributors of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant vehicles under their control after Forest River recognized that the subject noncompliance existed. Those vehicles must be brought into conformance, exported, or destroyed. E:\FR\FM\29AUN1.SGM 29AUN1
