England indicated in its renewal application that 3,046 drivers had utilized the original exemption. Its safety data show that drivers using the exemption demonstrated better safety outcomes than non-exempt drivers. Through the end of 2016, C.R. England reported 11 accidents to FMCSA involving drivers utilizing the exemption, none of which resulted in a fatality. The renewal of the exemption would be effective for 5 years, the maximum period allowed by § 381.300. V.
