Background Back to Top

The Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) has the authority under 49 U.S.C. 31502 and 31136 to establish standards for physical qualifications that must be met by commercial motor vehicle drivers in interstate commerce. These standards are published in 49 CFR part 391 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.

In October 1999, the Secretary rescinded the authority previously delegated to the Federal Highway Administrator to perform the motor carrier functions and operations, and to carry out the duties and powers related to motor carrier safety, that are statutorily vested in the Secretary. That authority was redelegated to the Director of the Office of Motor Carrier Safety (OMCS), a new office within the Department (64 FR 56270, October 19, 1999, and 64 FR 58356, October 29, 1999). The OMCS had previously been the FHWA's Office of Motor Carriers (OMC).

The Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 established the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) as a new operating administration within the Department of Transportation, effective January 1, 2000 (Pub. L. No. 106-159, 113 Stat. 1748, December 9, 1999). The Secretary therefore rescinded the motor carrier authority delegated to the Director of the OMCS and redelegated it to the Administrator of the FMCSA (65 FR 220, January 4, 2000).

The staff previously assigned to the FHWA's OMC, and then to the OMCS, are now assigned to the FMCSA. The motor carrier functions of the FHWA's Resource Centers and Division (i.e., State) Offices have been transferred without change to the FMCSA Resource Centers and FMCSA Division Offices, respectively. For the time being, all phone numbers and addresses are unchanged. Similarly, rulemaking activities begun under the auspices of the FWHA and continued under the OMCS will be completed by the FMCSA.

On June 9, 1998, the FHWA's waiver authority changed with enactment of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), Public Law 105-178, 112 Stat. 107. Section 4007 of TEA-21 amended the waiver provisions of 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315 to change the standard for evaluating waiver requests, to distinguish between a waiver and an exemption, and to establish term limits for both. Under revised section 31136(e), the FMCSA may grant a waiver for a period of up to 3 months or an exemption for a renewable 2-year period.

The amendments to 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) also changed the criteria for exempting a person from application of a regulation. Previously an exemption was appropriate if it was consistent with the public interest and the safe operation of CMVs. Now the FMCSA may grant an exemption if it finds “such exemption would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.” According to the legislative history, the Congress changed the statutory standard to give the agency greater discretion to consider exemptions. The previous standard was judicially construed as requiring an advance determination that absolutely no reduction in safety would result from an exemption. The Congress revised the standard to require that an “equivalent” level of safety be achieved by the exemption.

The FMCSA individually evaluated 141 exemption requests on their merits, as required by the decision in Rauenhorst v. United States Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, 95 F. 3d. 715 (8th Cir. 1996), and determined that the applicants do not satisfy the criteria established to demonstrate that granting the exemptions is likely to achieve an equal or greater level of safety than exists without the exemption. Each applicant has, prior to this notice, received a letter of final disposition on his/her individual exemption request. Those decision letters fully outlined the basis for the denial and constitute final agency action. The list published today summarizes the agency's recent denials as required under 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(4) by periodically publishing names and reason for denials.

Ninety-two applicants lacked sufficient recent driving experience over the past 3 years. Twenty-nine applicants lacked at least 3 years of experience driving a commercial motor vehicle with the vision deficiency. Fourteen applicants had no experience driving a commercial motor vehicle and therefore presented no evidence from which the FMCSA could conclude that granting the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equal to that existing without the exemption. Two drivers had waivers for the loss of a limb and therefore could not qualify for a vision exemption because they did not satisfy all other physical qualification standards in 49 CFR 391.41(b) to drive a commercial motor vehicle. In addition to their vision deficiency, they had missing limbs. One driver was diagnosed with high blood pressure, in addition to the vision deficiency, and could not qualify for the vision exemption because the physical qualification standards could not be satisfied. Another driver could not qualify for the exemption because he was convicted of three speeding violations in a three-year period and received a fourth speeding violation during the application process. An applicant for the vision exemption is only allowed two violations in a three-year period.

The agency is required to publish the names of persons who were not granted an exemption from the Federal vision requirements and the reasons for not granting the exemptions. The FMCSA has declined to consider the following applications for exemptions from the Federal vision requirements at 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) because they lack sufficient evidence of the necessary criteria to find “such exemptions would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.”

Summary of Causes for Not Granting Exemptions Back to Top

The FMCSA is not granting the following petitions for exemption from the vision standard in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10). In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(4) and 31136(e), the agency is publishing notice of the names of the applicants and reasons for not granting exemptions.

1. Eldo J. Haugen

Mr. Haugen was diagnosed with high blood pressure and therefore does not meet all other physical requirements, excluding vision, to qualify for an exemption. He does not qualify for an exemption because he is not “otherwise qualified” to drive a CMV.

2. Gary A. Smith

Mr. Smith does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safe performance.

3. Louis Ingwersen

Mr. Ingwersen does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

4. Jefferson S. Thomas

Mr. Thomas does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

5. Lloyd H. Walters

Mr. Walters does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

6. Robert L. Bowman

Mr. Bowman does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

7. Martin G. Taylor

Mr. Taylor does not have 3 years of experience driving a commercial vehicle with his vision deficiency.

8. Alvin F. Schroll

Mr. Schroll does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

9. Lawrence A. Lundquist

Mr. Lundquist does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

10. Ronald A. Mills

Mr. Mills does not have 3 years recent experience driving a commercial vehicle with his vision deficiency.

11. Norman E. Schluter

Mr. Schluter does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

12. Roland R. Strempke

Mr. Strempke does not have any experience driving a commercial motor vehicle with his vision deficiency.

13. Carolyn M. Beauvais

Ms. Beauvais has no experience operating a commercial motor vehicle and therefore presented no evidence from which the FMCSA can conclude that granting the exemption is likely to achieve a level of safety equal to that existing without the exemption.

14. Robert L. Slayden, Jr.

Mr. Slayden does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

15. Gary D. Beavers

Mr. Beavers does not have sufficient driving experience over the past 3 years under normal highway operating conditions that would serve as an adequate predictor of future safety performance.

16. Mitchell L. Carson

Mr. Carson has no experience operating a commercial motor vehicle and therefore presented no evidence from which the FMCSA can conclude that granting the exemption is likely to achieve a level of safety equal to that existing without the exemption.

22. Frank D. Pfeifer

Mr. Pfeifer has an amputation of his left hand and currently holds a Waiver of Physical Defects. As he does not meet all of the other physical standards in 49 CFR 391.41, without any other waiver or exemption, he failed to satisfy the criteria applied to evaluate vision exemption requests. In light of the recent decision in Parker v. FHWA, 207 F.3d 359 (6th Cir. 2000), we will reconsider Mr. Pfeifer's application consistent with the court's holding.

23. William R. Bass, Jr.
