SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 Part 391 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. The history and delegation of authority to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was published in the Federal Register on January 4, 2000 (65 FR 220).

Background

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 247 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.

Two hundred and six applicants lacked sufficient recent driving experience over the past three years. Thirteen applicants lacked at least three years of experience driving a commercial motor vehicle with their respective vision deficiencies. Two applicants had no experience driving a commercial motor vehicle. Five applicants were convicted of moving violations in conjunction with accidents. An applicant for an exemption cannot be involved in an accident for which he or she received a citation for a moving violation. Two applicants could not qualify for the exemption because they were convicted of three speeding violations in a three-year period, thus exceeding the two speeding violation maximum in a three-year period to qualify for the vision exemption. Two applicants had their licenses suspended during the three-year period and, therefore, could not qualify for the exemption. Two applicants did not qualify for the vision exemption because, in addition to the vision deficiency, they have other disqualifying medical conditions, and cannot meet the physical qualifications standards found at 49 CFR 391.41. One applicant did not have sufficient peripheral vision in the better eye to qualify for an exemption. Fourteen applicants did not qualify for the exemption because they meet the vision standards at 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10).

Summary of Causes for Not Granting Exemptions

The FMCSA has denied 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 the names of the applicants and the reasons for not granting exemptions.
