DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Terms and Conditions for the Exemption AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Based on its evaluation of the application for an exemption, FMCSA grants DriveCam’s exemption application. The Agency believes that the safety performance of motor carriers during the 2-year exemption period will likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety achieved without the exemption because (1) based on the technical information available, there is no indication that the video event recorders would obstruct drivers’ views of the roadway, highway signs and surrounding traffic; (2) generally, trucks and buses have an elevated seating position which greatly improves the forward visual field of the driver, and any impairment of available sight lines would be minimal; and (3) the location within the top two inches of the area swept by the windshield wiper and out of the driver’s normal sightline should be reasonable and enforceable at roadside. In addition, the Agency believes that the use of video event recorders by fleets to deter unsafe driving behavior is likely to improve the overall level of safety to the motoring public. Without the exemption, FMCSA would be unable to test this innovative safety management control system. The Agency hereby grants the exemption for a two-year period, beginning April 15, 2009 and ending April 15, 2011. During the temporary exemption period, motor carriers using video event recorders must ensure that the devices are mounted not more than 50 mm (2 inches) below the upper edge of the area swept by the windshield wipers, and outside the driver’s sight lines to the road and highway signs and signals. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with PROPOSALS 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.
