Summary:
      Gillig LLC "Gillig" is recalling certain model year 1997-2017 Low Floor transit buses. The front turn signals installed on standard profile "non-BRT" buses may not be sufficiently visible to other drivers or pedestrians. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence:
      The reduced visibility of the turn signals may increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Gillig will notify owners, and dealers will install turn signals that have increased visibility. The recall is expected to begin in April 2019. Owners may contact Gillig customer service at 1-510-264-5073 or 1-800-735-1500.
