Reports, Forms, and Recordkeeping Requirements
Before a Federal agency can collect certain information from the public, it must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Under procedures established by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before seeking OMB approval, Federal agencies must solicit public comment on proposed collections of information, including extensions and reinstatement of previously approved collections. This document describes one collection of information for which NHTSA intends to seek OMB approval.
YES! Sportscars; Response to Application for a Temporary Exemption From the Advanced Air Bag Requirements of FMVSS No. 208
This notice grants the YES! Sportscars application for temporary exemption from certain advanced air bag requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, Occupant Crash Protection. This exemption applies to the YES! Roadster 3.2 and 3.2 Turbo (hereinafter collectively referred to as ``the YES! Roadster''). In accordance with 49 CFR part 555, the basis for the grant is that compliance would cause substantial economic hardship to a manufacturer that has tried in good faith to comply with the standard, and the exemption would have a negligible impact on motor vehicle safety. The exemption for the YES! Roadster is effective September 1, 2006 and will remain in effect until August 31, 2009. In accordance with the requirements of 49 U.S.C. 30113(b)(2), we published a notice of receipt of the application \1\ in the Federal Register and asked for public comments.\2\ We received no comments on the application.
