Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Diabetes, 18951-18953 [2017-08196]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 77 / Monday, April 24, 2017 / Notices V. Discussion of Comments DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FMCSA received one comment in this proceeding. An anonymous commenter stated that they disagree with granting the exemptions, citing safety concerns. FMCSA has evaluated the medical records and driving histories of all 14 drivers included in this document and has determined that granting the exemptions will create an equal or greater level of safety as restricting them to driving in intrastate commerce. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration IV. Conclusion Based upon its evaluation of the 14 exemption applications, FMCSA exempts the following drivers from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10): Tyler D. Baseman (MN) Robert A. Ferrucci (FL) Gary W. Fields (VA) Michael D. Greene, Jr. (VT) Cory W. Haupt (SD) Joseph E. Jones (GA) Peter W. Lampasone (NY) Edward H. Lampe (OR) Thomas L. Lange (CO) Ronald R. Matheson (WY) Jason C. Nicklow, Sr. (PA) Lawrence M. Taylor (RI) Eric M. Turton (NY) Kendrick T. Williams (NC) 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. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Issued on: April 17, 2017.

II. Background On March 7, 2017, FMCSA published a notice of receipt of Federal diabetes exemption applications from 28 individuals and requested comments from the public (82 FR 12881). The PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18953 public comment period closed on April 6, 2017, and no comments were received. FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of the 28 applicants and determined that granting the exemptions to these individuals would achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved by complying with the current regulation 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3). Diabetes Mellitus and Driving Experience of the Applicants The Agency established the current requirement for diabetes in 1970 because several risk studies indicated that drivers with diabetes had a higher rate of crash involvement than the general population. The diabetes rule provides that ‘‘A person is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle if that person has no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of diabetes mellitus currently requiring insulin for control’’ (49 CFR 391.41(b)(3)). FMCSA established its diabetes exemption program, based on the Agency’s July 2000 study entitled ‘‘A Report to Congress on the Feasibility of a Program to Qualify Individuals with Insulin-Treated Diabetes Mellitus to Operate in Interstate Commerce as Directed by the Transportation Act for the 21st Century.’’ The report concluded that a safe and practicable protocol to allow some drivers with ITDM to operate CMVs is feasible. The September 3, 2003 (68 FR 52441), Federal Register notice in conjunction with the November 8, 2005 (70 FR 67777), Federal Register notice provides the current protocol for allowing such drivers to operate CMVs in interstate commerce. These 28 applicants have had ITDM over a range of 1 to 22 years. These applicants report no severe hypoglycemic reactions resulting in loss of consciousness or seizure, requiring the assistance of another person, or resulting in impaired cognitive function that occurred without warning symptoms, in the past 12 months and no recurrent (2 or more) severe hypoglycemic episodes in the past 5 years. In each case, an endocrinologist verified that the driver has demonstrated a willingness to properly monitor and manage his/her diabetes mellitus, received education related to diabetes management, and is on a stable insulin regimen. These drivers report no other disqualifying conditions, including diabetes-related complications. Each meets the vision requirement at 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10). E:\FR\FM\24APN1.SGM 24APN1

II. Background

    On March 7, 2017, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision 
to renew exemptions for 152 individuals from the insulin-treated 
diabetes mellitus prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) to operate a CMV 
in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (82 FR 
12886). The public comment period ended on April 6, 2017, and no 
comments were received.
    As stated in the previous notice, FMCSA has evaluated the 
eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these 
exemptions would achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater 
than the level that would be achieved by complying with the current 
regulation 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3).
    The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding diabetes 
found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) states that a person is physically 
qualified to drive a CMV if that person has no established medical 
history or clinical diagnosis of diabetes mellitus currently requiring 
insulin for control.

III. Discussion of Comments

    FMCSA received no comments in this preceding.

IV. Conclusion

    Based upon its evaluation of the 152 renewal exemption applications 
and that no comments were received, FMCSA confirms its' decision to 
exempt the following drivers from the rule prohibiting drivers with 
ITDM from driving CMVs in interstate commerce in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3).
