Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 117 / Monday, June 18, 2012 / Notices exemption has resulted in a lower level of safety than was maintained before it was granted; or (3) continuation of the exemption would not be consistent with the goals and objectives of 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Basis for Renewing Exemptions Under 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(1), an exemption may be granted for no longer than two years from its approval date and may be renewed upon application for additional two year periods. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, each of the 25 applicants has satisfied the entry conditions for obtaining an exemption from the vision requirements (66 FR 53826; 66 FR 66966; 67 FR 46016; 67 FR 57627; 68 FR 37197; 68 FR 48989; 69 FR 17263; 69 FR 17269; 69 FR 31447; 69 FR 31449; 69 FR 51346; 70 FR 42615; 71 FR 4194; 71 FR 6828; 71 FR 13450; 71 FR 19603; 71 FR 27033; 71 FR 50970; 72 FR 54971; 73 FR 6244; 73 FR 15255; 73 FR 16952; 73 FR 27014; 73 FR 28186; 73 FR 28187; 73 FR 75807; 74 FR 43220; 74 FR 57553; 74 FR 64125; 75 FR 9481; 75 FR 14656; 75 FR 14658; 75 FR 20882; 75 FR 22178; 75 FR 22179; 75 FR 25917; 75 FR 25918; 75 FR 25919; 75 FR 27623; 75 FR 27624; 75 FR 28684; 75 FR 39727; 75 FR 39729). Each of these 25 applicants has requested renewal of the exemption and has submitted evidence showing that the vision in the better eye continues to meet the requirement specified at 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) and that the vision impairment is stable. In addition, a review of each record of safety while driving with the respective vision deficiencies over the past two years indicates each applicant continues to meet the vision exemption requirements. These factors provide an adequate basis for predicting each driver’s ability to continue to drive safely in interstate commerce. Therefore, FMCSA concludes that extending the exemption for each renewal applicant for a period of two years is likely to achieve a level of safety equal to that existing without the exemption. Request for Comments FMCSA will review comments received at any time concerning a particular driver’s safety record and determine if the continuation of the exemption is consistent with the requirements at 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315. However, FMCSA requests that interested parties with specific data concerning the safety records of these drivers submit comments by July 18, 2012. FMCSA believes that the requirements for a renewal of an VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:02 Jun 15, 2012 Jkt 226001 exemption under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315 can be satisfied by initially granting the renewal and then requesting and evaluating, if needed, subsequent comments submitted by interested parties. As indicated above, the Agency previously published notices of final disposition announcing its decision to exempt these 25 individuals from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10). The final decision to grant an exemption to each of these individuals was made on the merits of each case and made only after careful consideration of the comments received to its notices of applications. The notices of applications stated in detail the qualifications, experience, and medical condition of each applicant for an exemption from the vision requirements. That information is available by consulting the above cited Federal Register publications. Interested parties or organizations possessing information that would otherwise show that any, or all, of these drivers are not currently achieving the statutory level of safety should immediately notify FMCSA. The Agency will evaluate any adverse evidence submitted and, if safety is being compromised or if continuation of the exemption would not be consistent with the goals and objectives of 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, FMCSA will take immediate steps to revoke the exemption of a driver.
