Recall Summary: Collins Bus Corporation (Collins) is recalling certain model year 2015 DE416, DE416WR, DE500, DE516, DE516WR, DH400, DH416, DH416WR, DH500, DH516, SH400, SL400, TH400, and TL400 school buses manufactured May 1, 2015, to December 21, 2015, equipped with certain Transpec T6000, T6100, and T7000 series school bus stop arms. The affected stop arms have a reflective decal that may peel loose from the stop arm. As such, these stop arms fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 131, "School Bus Pedestrian Safety Devices."
Hazard: Without a reflective decal, the stop arms would have reduced visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Collins will notify owners, and the stop arm blade assemblies will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 17, 2016. Owners may contact Collins customer service at 1-800-533-1850, or Transpec customer service at 1-800-951-7867.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Recall Summary: Collins Bus Corporation (Collins) is recalling certain model year 2013 model school bus and multi-functional school activity buses manufactured August 20, 2013, through November 13, 2013 and equipped with IMMI-brand L9 seat belt buckles.
