In support of its petition for exemption, Columbia Body notes that gravity feed dump trailers see limited highway exposure due to their function. Specifically, the trailers themselves are on the road for short periods of time. ‘‘Asphalt batch plants are typically set close to the paving activity to limit time traveling between the two paving activities.’’ Additionally, the petitioner states that in many instances, these paving machines are often performing their transport tasks away from the driving public in restricted access construction areas. Finally, Columbia Body believes its ability to obtain an exemption is in the public interest. Columbia Body has informed NHTSA that customers requesting its gravity feed dump trailers are doing so in order to pave local roadways. Many purchasers are local municipalities, or companies that support local municipalities in creating and maintaining roads for the traveling public. Therefore, the petitioner believes supplying gravity feed dump trailers is in the public interest. D.
