The comment is considered and discussed below. An anonymous commenter suggested shortening routes for visually impaired drivers and including assistant drivers as passengers. The Agency acknowledges the commenters concern; however, we do not feel it is necessary to impose these restrictions. Conclusion Based upon its evaluation of the 8 exemption applications, FMCSA exempts Tom Campbell (PA), Joe Cunningham (IN), Dolan A. Gonzalez, Jr. (FL), Paul R. Harpin (AZ), Terry L. Lipscomb (AL), Donald G. Reed (IL), Randy T. Richardson (KS), and James E. Smith (IL) from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10), subject to the requirements cited above (49 CFR 391.64(b)). In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, each exemption will be valid for 2 years unless revoked earlier by FMCSA. The exemption will be revoked if: (1) The person fails to comply with the terms and conditions of the exemption; (2) the 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 and 31315. If the exemption is still effective at the end of the 2-year period, the person may apply to FMCSA for a renewal under procedures in effect at that time. Issued on: May 10, 2013. Larry W. Minor, Associate Administrator for Policy.
