The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is responsible for establishing and enforcing vehicle antitheft regulations. Motor vehicle theft is a growing problem that results in billions of dollars in losses every year. NHTSA has developed this annual guide to provide the law enforcement community with a concise reference tool to help identify passenger motor vehicles that are subject to the parts-marking requirements through model year 2006 and also to assist law enforcement in their prosecution and motor vehicle theft prevention efforts. This new guide also provides a quick-reference, comprehensive summary of the vehicles that have been installed with an antitheft device as standard equipment identifying which vehicles are exempted from the parts-marking requirements, the type of exemption granted (partial or full), and the production year(s) for which the exemption applies.
For additional copies of the guide, please mail your request to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Room 5320, NVS-131, 400 Seventh Street SW., Washington, DC 20590.
