Rear Conspicuity Treatment

SAFETY RECALL INFORMATION

Mack Trucks Inc. has determined that the vertical white conspicuity reflectors on the back of the cab of certain AN and PI model vehicles may be blocked by the exhaust and air tank. As a result, a non-compliance with U.S. and Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108, which states “no more than 25% of their cumulative area may be obscured by vehicle equipment as determined in a rear orthogonal view,” may exist. The safety risk is the back of the truck-tractor may be less visible when operating without a trailer in the dark.

To address these concerns, MACK will update trucks to comply with U.S. and Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108, by applying new reflectors to the rear window. Follow the procedure outlined in this document.
