The final 2014 theft data show a slight decrease in the vehicle theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in MY/CY 2013. The final theft rate for MY 2014 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2014 decreased to 1.1512 thefts per thousand vehicles produced, a decrease of 0.43 percent from the rate of 1.1562 thefts per thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2013 vehicles in CY 2013. For MY 2014 vehicles, out of a total of 235 vehicle lines, five 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 five vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, four are passenger car lines, one is a multipurpose passenger vehicle line, and none are light-duty truck lines. The MY 2014 theft rate reduction is consistent with the general decreasing trend of theft rates over the past several years as indicated by Figure 1. A statistical compilation of stolen vehicle data from various vehicle theft monitoring agencies show that passenger motor vehicle theft is trending downward. A similar decreasing trend in vehicle thefts was reported in the FBI 2014 Uniform Crime Report showing a 1.5% reduction in motor vehicle thefts (automobiles, trucks, buses and other vehicles) from 2013 to 2014. Overall, as indicated by Figure 1, theft rates have continued to show a downward trend since MY/CY 1993, with periods of very moderate increases from one year to the next.

In response to this comment, the production volume for the Volkswagen has been corrected and the final theft data has been revised accordingly. As a result of the correction, the Volkswagen Tiguan previously ranked No. 38 with a theft rate of 1.7563 is now ranked No. 99 with a theft rate of 0.8068. Further review of the preliminary theft list revealed that the numbering sequence of the vehicle lines was incorrect. Specifically, the listing erroneously omitted the sequence row PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 for vehicle No. 234. The final theft data has been revised to reflect the correct numbering sequence. As a result of the changes in the numbering sequence, the theft data reflects 235 vehicles instead of 236 vehicles for MY 2014. The following list represents NHTSA’s final calculation of theft rates for all 2014 passenger motor vehicle lines. This list is intended to inform the public of calendar year 2014 motor vehicle thefts of model year 2014 vehicles and does not have any effect on the obligations of regulated parties under 49 U.S.C.

The agency tentatively ranked each of the MY 2014 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. As a result of the adjustments, some of the final theft rates and rankings of vehicle lines changed from those published in the September 2015 notice. The agency received a written comment from Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure. AGENCY: NMFS implements accountability measures (AMs) for commercial snowy grouper in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the South Atlantic. NMFS projects commercial landings for snowy grouper will reach the commercial annual catch limit (ACL) by June 22, 2017. Therefore, NMFS closes the commercial sector for snowy grouper in the South Atlantic EEZ on June 22, 2017, and it will remain closed until the start of the next fishing season on January 1, 2018. This closure is necessary to protect the snowy grouper resource. DATES: This rule is effective 12:01 a.m., local time, June 22, 2017, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2018. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:29 Jun 20, 2017 Jkt 241001 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary Vara, NMFS Southeast Regional Office, telephone: 727–824–5305, email: mary.vara@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The snapper-grouper fishery of the South Atlantic includes snowy grouper and is managed under the Fishery Management Plan for the SnapperGrouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region (FMP). The FMP was prepared by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council and is implemented by NMFS under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622. The commercial ACL (commercial quota) for snowy grouper in the South Atlantic is 135,380 lb (61,407 kg), gutted weight, 159,749 lb (72,461 kg), round weight, for the current fishing year, January 1 through December 31, 2017, as specified in 50 CFR 622.190(a)(1)(iii). Under 50 CFR 622.193(b)(1)(i), NMFS is required to close the commercial sector for snowy grouper for the remainder of the fishing year when the commercial quota is reached, or is projected to be reached, by filing a notification to that effect with the Office of the Federal Register. NMFS projects that commercial landings of South Atlantic snowy grouper, as estimated by the Science and Research Director, will reach the commercial quota by June 22, 2017. Accordingly, the commercial sector for South Atlantic snowy grouper is closed effective 12:01 a.m., local time, June 22, 2017, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2018. The operator of a vessel with a valid commercial vessel permit for South Atlantic snapper-grouper having snowy grouper on board must have landed and bartered, traded, or sold such snowy grouper prior to 12:01 a.m., local time, PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 June 22, 2017. During the commercial closure, harvest and possession of snowy grouper in or from the South Atlantic EEZ is limited to the bag and possession limits, which are specified in § 622.187(b)(2)(ii) and (c)(1). Also during the commercial closure, the sale or purchase of snowy grouper taken from the EEZ is prohibited. The prohibition on sale or purchase does not apply to the sale or purchase of snowy grouper that were harvested, landed ashore, and sold prior to 12:01 a.m., local time, June 22, 2017, and were held in cold storage by a dealer or processor, as specified in § 622.190(c)(1)(i). For a person on board a vessel for which a Federal commercial or charter vessel/headboat permit for the South Atlantic snapper-grouper fishery has been issued, the bag and possession limits and the sale and purchase provisions of the commercial closure for snowy grouper would apply regardless of whether the fish are harvested in state or Federal waters, as specified in 50 CFR 622.190(c)(1)(ii). Classification The Regional Administrator, Southeast Region, NMFS, has determined this temporary rule is necessary for the conservation and management of snowy grouper and the South Atlantic snapper-grouper fishery and is consistent with the MagnusonStevens Act and other applicable laws. This action is taken under 50 CFR 622.193(b)(1)(i) and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. These measures are exempt from the procedures of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, because the temporary rule is issued without opportunity for prior notice and comment. This action responds to the best scientific information available. The Assistant Administrator for NOAA Fisheries (AA), finds that the need to E:\FR\FM\21JNR1.SGM 21JNR1 ER21JN17.009</GPH> Issued in Washington, DC, under authority delegated in 49 CFR 1.95.

[Docket No. NHTSA-2016-0073]


Final Theft Data; Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard

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

ACTION: Publication of 2014 final theft data.

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

SUMMARY: This document publishes the final data on thefts of model year 
(MY) 2014 passenger motor vehicles that occurred in calendar year (CY) 
2014, including theft rates for existing passenger motor vehicle lines 
manufactured in model year (MY) 2014.

DATES: Effective date: June 21, 2017.

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) 366-4139. 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 2014, the most recent 
calendar year for which data are available.
    In calculating the 2014 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same 
procedures it used in calculating the MY 2013 theft rates. (For 2013 
theft data calculations, see 80 FR 72929, November 23, 2015). 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 2014 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by 
dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2014 vehicles of that line 
stolen during calendar year 2014 by the total number of vehicles in 
that line manufactured for MY 2014, as reported to the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA).
    The final 2014 theft data show a slight decrease in the vehicle 
theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in MY/CY 2013. 
The final theft rate for MY 2014 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar 
year 2014 decreased to 1.1512 thefts per thousand vehicles produced, a 
decrease of 0.43 percent from the rate of 1.1562 thefts per thousand 
vehicles experienced by MY 2013 vehicles in CY 2013.
    For MY 2014 vehicles, out of a total of 235 vehicle lines, five 
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 five vehicle lines with a theft rate higher 
than 3.5826, four are passenger car lines, one is a multipurpose 
passenger vehicle line, and none are light-duty truck lines.
    The MY 2014 theft rate reduction is consistent with the general 
decreasing trend of theft rates over the past several years as 
indicated by Figure 1. A statistical compilation of stolen vehicle data 
from various vehicle theft monitoring agencies show that passenger 
motor vehicle theft is trending downward. A similar decreasing trend in 
vehicle thefts was reported in the FBI 2014 Uniform Crime Report 
showing a 1.5% reduction in motor vehicle thefts (automobiles, trucks, 
buses and other vehicles) from 2013 to 2014. Overall, as indicated by 
Figure 1, theft rates have continued to show a downward trend since MY/
CY 1993, with periods of very moderate increases from one year to the 
next.

    On Tuesday, September 20, 2016, NHTSA published the preliminary 
theft rates for CY 2014 passenger motor vehicles in the Federal 
Register (80 FR 46930). The agency tentatively ranked each of the MY 
2014 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. As a result of the 
adjustments, some of the final theft rates and rankings of vehicle 
lines changed from those published in the September 2015 notice. The 
agency received a written comment from Volkswagen Group of America, 
Inc. (Volkswagen).
    In its comment, Volkswagen informed the agency that the production 
volume listed for the Volkswagen Tiguan was incorrect. In response to 
this comment, the production volume for the Volkswagen has been 
corrected and the final theft data has been revised accordingly. As a 
result of the correction, the Volkswagen Tiguan previously ranked No. 
38 with a theft rate of 1.7563 is now ranked No. 99 with a theft rate 
of 0.8068.
    Further review of the preliminary theft list revealed that the 
numbering sequence of the vehicle lines was incorrect. Specifically, 
the listing erroneously omitted the sequence row for vehicle No. 234. 
The final theft data has been revised to reflect the correct numbering 
sequence. As a result of the changes in the numbering sequence, the 
theft data reflects 235 vehicles instead of 236 vehicles for MY 2014.
    The following list represents NHTSA's final calculation of theft 
rates for all 2014 passenger motor vehicle lines. This list is intended 
to inform the public of calendar year 2014 motor vehicle thefts of 
model year 2014 vehicles and does not have any effect on the 
obligations of regulated parties under 49 U.S.C. Chapter 331, Theft 
Prevention.
