Commentary

Statutory Provisions: 49 U.S.C. §§ 32703-32705, 32709(b).

Background:  The base offense level takes into account the deceptive aspect of the offense assuming a single vehicle was involved.  If more than one vehicle was involved, §2B1.1 (Theft, Property Destruction, and Fraud) is to be applied because it is designed to deal with a pattern or scheme.

Historical Note:  Effective November 1, 1987.  Amended effective November 1, 1989 (see Appendix C, amendment 199); November 1, 1997 (see Appendix C, amendment 553); November 1, 2001 (see Appendix C, amendment 617).
