ACTION: Notice of renewal of exemption; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: FMCSA announces its decision to renew the American Pyrotechnics Association (APA) exemption from FMCSA’s regulation that drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) may not drive after the 14th hour of coming on duty. The exemption for 70 motor carriers and approximately 3,000 drivers is applicable for a period beginning 7 days prior to and 2 days immediately following Independence Day in 2007 and 2008. Drivers who operate CMVs in conjunction with staging fireworks shows celebrating Independence Day will be allowed to exclude off-duty and sleeper-berth time of any length from the calculation of the 14 hours. These drivers will not be allowed to drive after E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 28756 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 98 / Tuesday, May 22, 2007 / Notices accumulating a total of 14 hours of onduty time, following 10 consecutive hours off duty, and will continue to be subject to the 11-hour driving time limit, and the 60- and 70-hour on-duty limits.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Under 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e), FMCSA may renew an exemption from the hours of service (HOS) requirements in 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2) for a 2-year period 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.’’ The procedures for requesting an exemption (including renewals) are prescribed in 49 CFR part 381. FMCSA has evaluated the American Pyrotechnics Association (APA) application for a renewal on its merits and decided to renew the exemption for the 70 companies requested for a two-year period. The list of APA member companies covered by the exemption from 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2) is included as an Appendix to this Notice. APA Application for an Exemption Renewal APA applied for the renewal of an exemption from the HOS rules, specifically 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2), which prohibits drivers from operating property-carrying CMVs after the 14th hour of coming on duty. APA requested that drivers covered by the exemption be allowed to exclude off-duty and sleeper-berth time of any length from the calculation of the 14-hour rule. Drivers would not be allowed to drive after the accumulation of 14 hours of on-duty time following 10 consecutive hours off duty. The exemption would be applicable to 70 motor carriers and approximately 3,000 drivers responsible for operating about 3,000 CMVs. APA is seeking a renewal of this exemption because full compliance with the 14- PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 hour rule imposes a substantial economic hardship on their member companies. A copy of the request for a renewal is included in the docket referenced at the beginning of this notice. APA, a trade association representing the domestic fireworks industry, asserts that full compliance with the current HOS regulations during the brief period surrounding Independence Day imposes a substantial economic hardship on its members that operate fireworks for the public. According to their original exemption request submitted in December 2004, APA member-company drivers are trained pyrotechnicians, each holding a commercial driver’s license (CDL) with a hazardous materials (HM) endorsement. These drivers transport fireworks and equipment to remote locations under demanding schedules. During the week before Independence Day, APA members are engaged to stage multiple shows in a very compressed period of time. To meet the surge of business in this 1-week period under the current HOS rules, companies would be required to hire a second driver for most trips. This would result in a substantial increase in the cost of these shows, and as a result, many shows would be cancelled. Alternatively, APA members would be forced to significantly decrease their engagements. In either case, APA members would have to decrease the number of shows they provide, thereby denying many Americans a primary component of their Independence Day celebration. Method To Ensure an Equivalent or Greater Level of Safety APA believes that the renewal of the exemption will not adversely affect the safety of the motor carrier transportation provided by their member companies. These companies operated under the existing exemption for two years with no reports of incidents of any kind. Moreover, according to the APA, the exemption will enhance safety by decreasing the number of CMVs stationed with HM 1.3 and 1.4 products aboard at locations throughout the country. Under the exemption, CMVs will be able to return to their home base, which is a secured area for these types of products. In their original exemption request, APA stated they believe that the operational demands of this unique industry minimize the risks of CMV crashes. In the last few days before the Independence Day holiday, drivers spend their driving time transporting fireworks relatively short distances from the nearest distribution point to the site E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 98 / Tuesday, May 22, 2007 / Notices of the fireworks display. Most of their on-duty time, however, is devoted to installing, wiring, and double-checking fireworks displays. Pyrotechnicians drive to the site of the fireworks display in the early morning and return late in the evening, thus avoiding much of the heavy traffic typical of the holiday. After setting the fireworks display in daylight in order to reduce the possibility of mistakes, the pyrotechnicians/drivers typically have several hours off duty in the late afternoon and early evening, just before the shoot. This enables them to rest or nap, reducing or eliminating the fatigue caused by the day’s activities, and making their return trip later that evening safer. In addition to driving at off-peak hours and having an opportunity for substantial rest periods during their tour of duty, pyrotechnicians who drive back to a hotel or motel in the 15th or 16th hours after coming on duty will be required to take 10 consecutive hours off-duty, like other drivers. Although FMCSA believes the 14-hour limit is generally conducive to safety, the current HOS regulations allow certain short-haul drivers a 16-hour driving ‘‘window’’ once a week, providing specified conditions are met. Because pyrotechnician-drivers operate like short-haul drivers (relatively little driving, a variety of work), FMCSA has concluded that the 9-day yearly exemption requested by APA is not likely to adversely affect motor carrier safety. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Request for Comments In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(4) and 31136(e), FMCSA requests public comments on APA’s request for a renewal of its exemption from the requirements of 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2). FMCSA will review all comments received and determine whether the renewal of the exemption is consistent with the requirements of 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e). Comments received after the comment closing date will be filed in the public docket and will be considered to the extent practicable. FMCSA believes the requirements for a renewal of an exemption under 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e) can be satisfied by initially granting the renewal and then requesting and subsequently evaluating comments submitted by interested parties. As VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:21 May 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 indicated earlier, the Agency previously published a notice announcing its decision to exempt these APA member companies (and drivers) from the HOS rules in 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2). The decision to renew the exemption for these companies and drivers was based on the merits of the APA application, and only after careful consideration of the comments submitted in response to the May 6, 2005 notice (70 FR 24160). Interested parties or organizations possessing information that would otherwise show that any or all of these APA member companies are not achieving the requisite statutory level of safety should immediately notify FMCSA. The Agency will evaluate any information submitted and, if safety is being compromised or if the continuation of the exemption is inconsistent with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(4) and 31136(e), FMCSA will immediately take steps to revoke the exemption of the company or companies and driver(s) in question. 28757 Preemption During the period the exemption is in effect, no state shall enforce any law or regulation that conflicts with or is inconsistent with this exemption with respect to a person operating under the exemption. Notification to FMCSA The exemption from the requirements of 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2) (the 14-hour rule) is effective June 28, 2007, and is applicable from June 28 through July 6, 2007, and from June 28 through July 6, 2008. The exemption expires on July 7, 2008. Each company, firm and entity listed in the appendix to this notice must notify FMCSA within 5 business days of any of the following: 1. An accident (as defined in 49 CFR 390.5), involving any of the motor carrier’s CMVs, operating under the terms of this exemption. The notification must include the following information: a. Date of the accident, b. City or town, and State, in which the accident occurred, or closest to the accident scene, c. Driver’s name and license number, d. Vehicle number and State license number, e. Number of individuals suffering physical injury, f. Number of fatalities, g. The police-reported cause of the accident, and h. Whether the driver was cited for violation of any traffic laws, or motor carrier safety regulations. 2. The total driving time and the total on-duty time period prior to the accident. Extent of the Exemption Termination This exemption is restricted to drivers employed by the companies, firms and entities listed in the appendix to this notice. The drivers are entitled to a limited exemption from the requirements of 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2). This regulation, 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2), currently prohibits a driver from driving after the 14th hour of coming on duty and does not permit off-duty periods to extend the 14-hour limit. Drivers covered by this exemption may exclude off-duty and sleeper berth time of any length from the calculation of the 14-hour limit. This exemption is contingent on each driver driving no more than 11 hours in a 14-hour period. The exemption is further contingent on each driver having a full 10 hours off duty following 14 hours on duty prior to beginning a new driving period. The drivers must comply with all other requirements of 49 CFR part 395. FMCSA does not believe the motor carriers and drivers covered by this exemption will experience any deterioration of their safety record. However, should this occur, FMCSA will take all steps necessary to protect the public interest, including revocation of the exemption. FMCSA will immediately revoke the exemption for failure to comply with its terms and conditions. Each motor carrier and each driver may be subject to periodic monitoring by FMCSA during the period of the exemption.

DBA Maxonlift Corp.; Ruling on Petition for Determination of Inconsequential Noncompliance Maxon Industry Inc. DBA Maxonlift Corp. (Maxonlift) has determined that certain wheelchair lifts that it produced in 2005 and 2006 do not comply with paragraph S6.4.7.3 of 49 CFR 571.403, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 403, Platform Lift Systems for Motor Vehicles. Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h), Maxonlift has petitioned for a determination that this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety and has filed an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR Part 573, ‘‘Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports.’’ Notice of receipt of the petition was published, with a 30 day public comment period, on December 13, 2006 in the Federal Register (71 FR 74996). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) received no comments. To view the petition and all supporting documents, go to: https://dms.dot.gov/ search/searchFormSimple.cfm and enter Docket No. NHTSA–2006–26424. Affected are a total of approximately 197 Model WL–7 and WL–7A wheelchair lifts produced by Maxon between April 1, 2005 and May 30, 2006. Specifically, paragraph S6.4.7.3 of FMVSS No. 403 requires: jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES The deployed wheelchair retention device(s) must be capable of sustaining 7,117 N (1,600 lb force) when tested in accordance with S7.13. No separation, fracture, or breakage of the wheelchair retention device may occur as a result of conducting the test in S7.13. On the subject wheelchair lifts, the outer barrier wheelchair retention device does not comply. In NHTSA’s compliance test on the Maxon lift, the outer barrier sustained 5,502 N (1,237 lb. force). Bending occurs on the locking VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:21 May 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 bracket attachments and in the ramp extrusion, and potentially the outer barrier can unfold or break. Maxonlift has corrected the problem that caused these errors so that they will not be repeated in future production. Maxonlift believes that the noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety and that no corrective action is warranted. Maxonlift states: For the units built with seat belts [all except for 63] we have an electronic feature that does not allow the unit to travel up and down without the seat belts fastened. The seat belt is an added restraint that takes force off of the outboard roll stop. If an electric wheelchair is accidentally moved forward it will hit the seat belt first keeping the person in place. We have had zero failure reports or warranty claims relating to an outboard roll stop failure. With respect to the lifts that were provided with seat belts and an associated electronic feature that prevents lift platform up and down travel unless the seat belt is fastened, NHTSA agrees with Maxonlift that the noncompliance of the outer barrier is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. NHTSA does not agree with Maxonlift with regard to the remainder of the lifts that do not have seat belts (secondary wheelchair retention devices). Lifts without seatbelts would rely solely on the inadequate noncompliant outer barrier to prevent a wheelchair from rolling off the lift platform. A failure of the outer barrier would therefore present a potential for severe injury to both the wheelchair occupant and attendants. On the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA has determined that Maxonlift has adequately demonstrated that, under the specific facts and circumstances presented here, the noncompliance with FMVSS No. 403 in the lifts with seat belts is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety and no further action is warranted. Conversely, the noncompliance in the lifts without seat belts is not inconsequential. Accordingly, Maxonlift’s petition for an exemption from the duty to recall these noncompliant lifts equipped with seat belts is granted in part. However, the case of the noncompliant lifts without seat belts, the petition is denied PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and Maxonlift must notify according to 49 U.S.C. 30118 and remedy according to 49 U.S.C. 30120.

[Docket No. FMCSA-2007-28043]


Hours of Service (HOS) of Drivers; Renewal of American 
Pyrotechnics Association (APA) Exemption From the 14-Hour Rule during 
Independence Day Celebrations

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of renewal of exemption; request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: FMCSA announces its decision to renew the American 
Pyrotechnics Association (APA) exemption from FMCSA's regulation that 
drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) may not drive after the 
14th hour of coming on duty. The exemption for 70 motor carriers and 
approximately 3,000 drivers is applicable for a period beginning 7 days 
prior to and 2 days immediately following Independence Day in 2007 and 
2008. Drivers who operate CMVs in conjunction with staging fireworks 
shows celebrating Independence Day will be allowed to exclude off-duty 
and sleeper-berth time of any length from the calculation of the 14 
hours. These drivers will not be allowed to drive after

[[Page 28756]]

accumulating a total of 14 hours of on-duty time, following 10 
consecutive hours off duty, and will continue to be subject to the 11-
hour driving time limit, and the 60- and 70-hour on-duty limits. The 
terms and conditions of the current exemption will remain in place for 
a second two-year period. FMCSA believes that with the terms and 
conditions in place, APA will maintain a level of safety that is 
equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety that would be 
obtained by complying with the regulation.

DATES: This renewed exemption is effective from June 28 through July 6, 
2007, and from June 28 through July 6, 2008. The exemption expires on 
July 7, 2008. Comments must be received on or before June 21, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e), FMCSA may renew an exemption 
from the hours of service (HOS) requirements in 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2) for 
a 2-year period 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.'' The procedures for 
requesting an exemption (including renewals) are prescribed in 49 CFR 
part 381. FMCSA has evaluated the American Pyrotechnics Association 
(APA) application for a renewal on its merits and decided to renew the 
exemption for the 70 companies requested for a two-year period. The 
list of APA member companies covered by the exemption from 49 CFR 
395.3(a)(2) is included as an Appendix to this Notice.

APA Application for an Exemption Renewal

    APA applied for the renewal of an exemption from the HOS rules, 
specifically 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2), which prohibits drivers from operating 
property-carrying CMVs after the 14th hour of coming on duty. APA 
requested that drivers covered by the exemption be allowed to exclude 
off-duty and sleeper-berth time of any length from the calculation of 
the 14-hour rule. Drivers would not be allowed to drive after the 
accumulation of 14 hours of on-duty time following 10 consecutive hours 
off duty. The exemption would be applicable to 70 motor carriers and 
approximately 3,000 drivers responsible for operating about 3,000 CMVs. 
APA is seeking a renewal of this exemption because full compliance with 
the 14-hour rule imposes a substantial economic hardship on their 
member companies. A copy of the request for a renewal is included in 
the docket referenced at the beginning of this notice.
    APA, a trade association representing the domestic fireworks 
industry, asserts that full compliance with the current HOS regulations 
during the brief period surrounding Independence Day imposes a 
substantial economic hardship on its members that operate fireworks for 
the public. According to their original exemption request submitted in 
December 2004, APA member-company drivers are trained pyrotechnicians, 
each holding a commercial driver's license (CDL) with a hazardous 
materials (HM) endorsement. These drivers transport fireworks and 
equipment to remote locations under demanding schedules. During the 
week before Independence Day, APA members are engaged to stage multiple 
shows in a very compressed period of time. To meet the surge of 
business in this 1-week period under the current HOS rules, companies 
would be required to hire a second driver for most trips. This would 
result in a substantial increase in the cost of these shows, and as a 
result, many shows would be cancelled. Alternatively, APA members would 
be forced to significantly decrease their engagements. In either case, 
APA members would have to decrease the number of shows they provide, 
thereby denying many Americans a primary component of their 
Independence Day celebration.

Method To Ensure an Equivalent or Greater Level of Safety

    APA believes that the renewal of the exemption will not adversely 
affect the safety of the motor carrier transportation provided by their 
member companies. These companies operated under the existing exemption 
for two years with no reports of incidents of any kind. Moreover, 
according to the APA, the exemption will enhance safety by decreasing 
the number of CMVs stationed with HM 1.3 and 1.4 products aboard at 
locations throughout the country. Under the exemption, CMVs will be 
able to return to their home base, which is a secured area for these 
types of products.
    In their original exemption request, APA stated they believe that 
the operational demands of this unique industry minimize the risks of 
CMV crashes. In the last few days before the Independence Day holiday, 
drivers spend their driving time transporting fireworks relatively 
short distances from the nearest distribution point to the site

[[Page 28757]]

of the fireworks display. Most of their on-duty time, however, is 
devoted to installing, wiring, and double-checking fireworks displays. 
Pyrotechnicians drive to the site of the fireworks display in the early 
morning and return late in the evening, thus avoiding much of the heavy 
traffic typical of the holiday. After setting the fireworks display in 
daylight in order to reduce the possibility of mistakes, the 
pyrotechnicians/drivers typically have several hours off duty in the 
late afternoon and early evening, just before the shoot. This enables 
them to rest or nap, reducing or eliminating the fatigue caused by the 
day's activities, and making their return trip later that evening 
safer.
    In addition to driving at off-peak hours and having an opportunity 
for substantial rest periods during their tour of duty, pyrotechnicians 
who drive back to a hotel or motel in the 15th or 16th hours after 
coming on duty will be required to take 10 consecutive hours off-duty, 
like other drivers. Although FMCSA believes the 14-hour limit is 
generally conducive to safety, the current HOS regulations allow 
certain short-haul drivers a 16-hour driving ``window'' once a week, 
providing specified conditions are met. Because pyrotechnician-drivers 
operate like short-haul drivers (relatively little driving, a variety 
of work), FMCSA has concluded that the 9-day yearly exemption requested 
by APA is not likely to adversely affect motor carrier safety.

Request for Comments

    In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(4) and 31136(e), FMCSA 
requests public comments on APA's request for a renewal of its 
exemption from the requirements of 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2). FMCSA will 
review all comments received and determine whether the renewal of the 
exemption is consistent with the requirements of 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 
31136(e). Comments received after the comment closing date will be 
filed in the public docket and will be considered to the extent 
practicable.
    FMCSA believes the requirements for a renewal of an exemption under 
49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e) can be satisfied by initially granting the 
renewal and then requesting and subsequently evaluating comments 
submitted by interested parties. As indicated earlier, the Agency 
previously published a notice announcing its decision to exempt these 
APA member companies (and drivers) from the HOS rules in 49 CFR 
395.3(a)(2). The decision to renew the exemption for these companies 
and drivers was based on the merits of the APA application, and only 
after careful consideration of the comments submitted in response to 
the May 6, 2005 notice (70 FR 24160).
    Interested parties or organizations possessing information that 
would otherwise show that any or all of these APA member companies are 
not achieving the requisite statutory level of safety should 
immediately notify FMCSA. The Agency will evaluate any information 
submitted and, if safety is being compromised or if the continuation of 
the exemption is inconsistent with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(4) and 31136(e), 
FMCSA will immediately take steps to revoke the exemption of the 
company or companies and driver(s) in question.

Terms of the Exemption

Period of the Exemption

    The exemption from the requirements of 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2) (the 14-
hour rule) is effective June 28, 2007, and is applicable from June 28 
through July 6, 2007, and from June 28 through July 6, 2008. The 
exemption expires on July 7, 2008.

Extent of the Exemption

    This exemption is restricted to drivers employed by the companies, 
firms and entities listed in the appendix to this notice. The drivers 
are entitled to a limited exemption from the requirements of 49 CFR 
395.3(a)(2). This regulation, 49 CFR 395.3(a)(2), currently prohibits a 
driver from driving after the 14th hour of coming on duty and does not 
permit off-duty periods to extend the 14-hour limit. Drivers covered by 
this exemption may exclude off-duty and sleeper berth time of any 
length from the calculation of the 14-hour limit. This exemption is 
contingent on each driver driving no more than 11 hours in a 14-hour 
period. The exemption is further contingent on each driver having a 
full 10 hours off duty following 14 hours on duty prior to beginning a 
new driving period. The drivers must comply with all other requirements 
of 49 CFR part 395.

Preemption

    During the period the exemption is in effect, no state shall 
enforce any law or regulation that conflicts with or is inconsistent 
with this exemption with respect to a person operating under the 
exemption.

Notification to FMCSA

    Each company, firm and entity listed in the appendix to this notice 
must notify FMCSA within 5 business days of any of the following:
    1. An accident (as defined in 49 CFR 390.5), involving any of the 
motor carrier's CMVs, operating under the terms of this exemption. The 
notification must include the following information:
    a. Date of the accident,
    b. City or town, and State, in which the accident occurred, or 
closest to the accident scene,
    c. Driver's name and license number,
    d. Vehicle number and State license number,
    e. Number of individuals suffering physical injury,
    f. Number of fatalities,
    g. The police-reported cause of the accident, and
    h. Whether the driver was cited for violation of any traffic laws, 
or motor carrier safety regulations.
    2. The total driving time and the total on-duty time period prior 
to the accident.

Termination

    FMCSA does not believe the motor carriers and drivers covered by 
this exemption will experience any deterioration of their safety 
record. However, should this occur, FMCSA will take all steps necessary 
to protect the public interest, including revocation of the exemption. 
FMCSA will immediately revoke the exemption for failure to comply with 
its terms and conditions. Each motor carrier and each driver may be 
subject to periodic monitoring by FMCSA during the period of the 
exemption.
