Among the 69 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Logo - Collins BusCollins Bus Corporation (“Collins Bus”) has recalled an estimated 3,787 model year 2015-2019 Midbus DH500, DH516, DH400, DE416, DE500, DE516, TH400, SH416 and SH400 School Buses equipped with HSM 39-INCH FB11 restraining barriers. In a hard braking situation or vehicle crash event, the barrier may not properly restrain an unbelted seat occupant. As a result, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 222, “School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection.”

According to the NHTSA, failure to properly restrain an unbelted seat occupant can increase the risk of injury.

Collins will notify registered owners, and HSM dealers will reinforce the barrier frame, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2019. Owners may contact Collins customer service at 1-800-533-1850, extension 424. Collins’ designation for this recall is 19E-010.
