Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; C.R. England, 48889-48891 [2017-22841]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 202 / Friday, October 20, 2017 / Notices instituted several technical and administrative controls to ensure the efficient transportation of cargo requiring protective services, controls that would remain in effect under the requested exemption. They include the following: • Conducting review of carrier compliance requirements and procedures for moving hazardous cargo. • Evaluating carrier authority to operate on United States roadways. • Evaluating carrier compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance Safety Accountability Program Safety Measurement System standards. • Providing over-the-road vehicle surveillance. • Inspecting carrier facilities and corporate headquarters for compliance with DOD and DOT standards. Further details regarding SDDC’s safety controls can be found in its initial application for exemption. The application can be accessed in the docket identified at the beginning of this notice. SDDC asserts that granting the exemption would allow driver teams to manage their en route rest periods efficiently and also perform mandated shipment security surveillance, resulting in both safe driving performance and greater security of cargo during long-distance trips. SDDC anticipates no safety impacts from this exemption and believes that its contract employee drivers should be allowed to follow the requirements in § 395.1(q) when transporting shipments of sensitive DOD cargo. SDDC believes that shipments made under the requested exemption would achieve a level of safety and security that is at least equivalent to that which would be obtained by following the normal break requirement in § 395.3(a)(3)(ii). SDDC indicated that approximately 1,942 power units and 3,000 drivers would be covered by the exemption. The renewed exemption is effective for 5 years, the maximum period allowed by § 381.300. srobinson on DSKBC5CHB2PROD with NOTICES VI. Terms of the Exemption 1. Drivers authorized by SDDC to utilize the exemption renewal, must have a copy of the exemption document in their possession while operating under the terms of the exemption. The exemption document must be presented to law enforcement officials upon request. 2. All motor carriers operating under this exemption must have a ‘‘Satisfactory’’ safety rating with FMCSA, or be ‘‘unrated;’’ motor carriers with ‘‘Conditional’’ or ‘‘Unsatisfactory’’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:22 Oct 19, 2017 Jkt 244001 FMCSA safety ratings are prohibited from using this exemption. Period of the Exemption The exemption from the requirements of 49 CFR 395.3(a)(3)(ii) is effective from 12:01 a.m., October 22, 2018, through 11:59 p.m., October 21, 2023. Extent of the Exemption The exemption is restricted to SDDC’s contract driver-employees transporting security-sensitive materials. This exemption is limited to the provisions of 49 CFR 395.3(a)(3)(ii) and allows contract driver-employees transporting security-sensitive materials to be treated the same as drivers transporting explosives, as provided in Section 395.1(q). These drivers are required to comply with all other applicable provisions of the FMCSRs. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31313(d), as implemented by 49 CFR 381.600, during the period this exemption is in effect, no State shall enforce any law or regulation applicable to interstate commerce that conflicts with or is inconsistent with this exemption with respect to a firm or person operating under the exemption. States may, but are not required to, adopt the same exemption with respect to operations in intrastate commerce. FMCSA Accident Notification SDDC must notify FMCSA within 5 business days of any accidents (as defined by 49 CFR 390.5) involving the operation of any of its CMVs while utilizing this exemption. The notification must be by email to MCPSD@DOT.GOV, and include the following information: a. Name of the Exemption: ‘‘SDDC’’, b. Date of the accident, c. City or town, and State, in which the accident occurred, or which is closest to the scene of the accident, d. Driver’s name and driver’s license State, number, and class, e. Co-Driver’s name and driver’s license State, number, and class, f. Vehicle company number and power unit license plate State and number, g. Number of individuals suffering physical injury, h.

AGENCY: FMCSA announces its decision to re-affirm renewal of an exemption granted to C.R. England from the regulation that requires a commercial learner’s permit (CLP) holder to be accompanied by a commercial driver’s license (CDL) holder with the proper CDL class and endorsements, seated in the front seat of the vehicle while the CLP holder performs behind-the-wheel training on public roads or highways. Under this exemption, a CLP holder who has documentation of passing the CDL skills test may drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) for C.R. England without being accompanied by a CDL holder in the front seat of the vehicle. The exemption enables CLP holders to drive as part of a team like other C.R. England team drivers. FMCSA has analyzed the public comments in response to the exemption renewal and has determined that the renewed exemption, subject to the terms and conditions imposed, will likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.

FMCSA must publish a notice of each exemption request in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(a)). The Agency must provide the public an opportunity to inspect the information relevant to the application, including any safety analyses that have been conducted. The Agency must also provide an opportunity for public comment on the request. The Agency reviews the safety analyses and the public comments, and determines whether granting the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by the current regulation (49 CFR 381.305). The decision of the Agency must be published in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(b)) with the reason for the grant or denial, and, if granted, the specific person or class of persons receiving the exemption, and the regulatory provision or provisions from which exemption is granted. The notice must also specify the effective period of the exemption (up to 5 years), and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)). srobinson on DSKBC5CHB2PROD with NOTICES Request for Exemption Renewal C.R. England’s initial exemption application from the provisions of 49 CFR 383.25(a)(1) was submitted in 2014; a copy is in the docket identified at the beginning of this notice. The 2014 application described fully the nature of the C.R. England operations and CMV drivers. The exemption was granted on June 11, 2015 (80 FR 33329) and renewed for 5 years on June 12, 2017 (82 FR 26975). The exemption excuses C.R. England from the requirement that a driver accompanying a CLP holder must be physically present at all times in the front seat of a CMV, on the condition that the CLP holder has successfully passed an approved CDL skills test. C.R. England’s 2014 application argued that the existing requirement is inefficient and unproductive, as the company must incur added expense to send the driver VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:22 Oct 19, 2017 Jkt 244001 to his or her home State to collect a CDL document. C.R. England believed that FMCSA should renew the exemption for an additional 5-year period because it results in safer drivers. It allows C.R. England to foster a more productive and efficient training environment by allowing CLP holders to hone their recently acquired driving skills through on-the-job training and to begin earning an income right away, producing immediate benefits for the driver, the carrier, and the economy as a whole. Public Comments In response to the notice renewing the exemption, the Agency received six docket comments from truck drivers, driver-trainers, and other individuals, all opposing that decision. These respondents do not believe that it is safe for a CLP holder to operate a CMV without the supervision of a CDL drivertrainer in the front seat of the vehicle. FMCSA Response and Decision The premise of respondents opposing the exemption is that CLP holders lack experience and are safer drivers when observed by a CDL driver-trainer who is on duty and in the front seat of the vehicle. The fact is that CLP holders who have passed the CDL skills test are qualified and eligible to obtain a CDL. If these CLP holders had obtained their CLPs and training in their State of domicile, they could immediately receive their CDL at the State driver licensing agency and begin driving a CMV without any on-board supervision. There is no evidence that having a CDL holder accompany a CLP holder who has passed the skills test improves safety. Because these drivers have passed the CDL skills test, the only thing necessary to obtain the CDL is to visit the Department of Motor Vehicles in their State of domicile. C.R. England’s overall safety performance is reflected in its ‘‘satisfactory’’ safety rating. The exemption is restricted to C.R. England’s CLP holders who have documentation that they have passed the CDL skills test. The exemption will enable these drivers to operate a CMV as a team driver without requiring the accompanying CDL holder be on duty and in the front seat while the vehicle is moving. FMCSA therefore reaffirms its decision to renew the exemption because it will likely enable C.R. England drivers to achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety achieved without the exemption (49 CFR 381.305(a)).

Abstract: The National 911 Profile Database is funded by the National 911 Program, which is housed within the Office of Emergency Medical Services at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The National 911 Program is proposing to continue to collect and aggregate information from State level reporting entities that can be used to measure the progress of 911 authorities across the country in upgrading their existing operations and migrating to—digital, Internet-Protocol-based emergency communication networks. The data will be maintained in a ‘‘National 911 Profile Database.’’ One of the objectives of the National 911 Program is to develop, collect, and disseminate information concerning practices, procedures, and technology used in the implementation of 911 services and to support 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and related State and local agencies for 911 deployment and operations. The National 911 Profile Database can be used to follow the progress of 911 authorities in enhancing their existing systems and implementing nextgeneration networks for more advanced systems. The information can also be used to identify ways in which the National 911 Program can support State and local 911 authorities in the transition process. Affected Public: Under this proposed effort, the National 911 Program would specifically request reporting entities to voluntarily collect and annually report the data described above utilizing a Web-based data collection tool. Reporting entities are State level 911 program officials, and the data reported will reflect State-level aggregated data. The total maximum number of respondents is identified at 56, including the 50 States and the six U.S. Territories of Guam, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, American Samoa, Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. Estimated Number of Respondents: The total maximum number of respondents is identified at 56, including the 50 States and the six U.S. Territories of Guam, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, American Samoa, Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. Frequency: The reporting entities will be requested to submit data annually PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48891 relating to their State or territory, using the described Web-based tool. Number of Responses: The total maximum number of responses is identified at 56 annually, including the 50 States and the six U.S. Territories of Guam, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, American Samoa, Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The Agencies estimate that submitting responses to the questions included in the proposed survey instrument utilizing the Web-based tool would require an average of 98 hours to collect, aggregate and submit. Estimating the maximum number of respondents at 56, this would result in a total burden of 5,488 hours. The respondents would not incur any reporting costs from the information collection beyond the time it takes to gather the information, prepare it for reporting and then populate the Web-based data collection tool. The respondents also would not incur any recordkeeping burden or recordkeeping costs from the information collection. • The total estimated costs to respondents or record-keepers are based on the following: • The total hour burden of the collection of information equaling 5,488 hours • Respondents will be State, territory, and tribal government management personnel. To estimate reasonable staff expenses to respond to this information collection, the Agencies reviewed the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook Handbook and determined that the Administrative Services Manager description closely aligns with the positions of recipient staff responsible for completing this request. BLS lists a median salary of $86,100 annually, amounting to $41.40 per hour. • There are no capital, start-up, or annual operation and maintenance costs involved in the collection of information. • Total cost based on hour’s burden equals $227,203.20. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the Department’s performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for the Department to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information.

Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; 
C.R. England

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of final disposition; grant of application for 
exemption.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: FMCSA announces its decision to re-affirm renewal of an 
exemption granted to C.R. England from the regulation that requires a 
commercial learner's permit (CLP) holder to be accompanied by a 
commercial driver's license (CDL) holder with the proper CDL class and 
endorsements, seated in the front seat of the vehicle while the CLP 
holder performs behind-the-wheel training on public roads or highways. 
Under this exemption, a CLP holder who has documentation of passing the 
CDL skills test may drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) for C.R. 
England without being accompanied by a CDL holder in the front seat of 
the vehicle. The exemption enables CLP holders to drive as part of a 
team like other C.R. England team drivers. FMCSA has analyzed the 
public comments in response to the exemption renewal and has determined 
that the renewed exemption, subject to the terms and conditions 
imposed, will likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, 
or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such 
exemption.

DATES: The exemption is effective from June 13, 2017, through June 12, 
2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315 to grant 
exemptions from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. FMCSA 
must publish a notice of each exemption request in the Federal Register 
(49 CFR 381.315(a)). The Agency must provide the public an opportunity 
to inspect the information relevant to the application, including any 
safety analyses that have been conducted. The Agency must also provide 
an opportunity for public comment on the request.
    The Agency reviews the safety analyses and the public comments, and 
determines whether granting the exemption would likely achieve a level 
of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be 
achieved by the current regulation (49 CFR 381.305). The decision of 
the Agency must be published in the Federal Register (49 CFR 
381.315(b)) with the reason for the grant or denial, and, if granted, 
the specific person or class of persons receiving the exemption, and 
the regulatory provision or provisions from which exemption is granted. 
The notice must also specify the effective period of the exemption (up 
to 5 years), and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The 
exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)).

Request for Exemption Renewal

    C.R. England's initial exemption application from the provisions of 
49 CFR 383.25(a)(1) was submitted in 2014; a copy is in the docket 
identified at the beginning of this notice. The 2014 application 
described fully the nature of the C.R. England operations and CMV 
drivers. The exemption was granted on June 11, 2015 (80 FR 33329) and 
renewed for 5 years on June 12, 2017 (82 FR 26975).
    The exemption excuses C.R. England from the requirement that a 
driver accompanying a CLP holder must be physically present at all 
times in the front seat of a CMV, on the condition that the CLP holder 
has successfully passed an approved CDL skills test. C.R. England's 
2014 application argued that the existing requirement is inefficient 
and unproductive, as the company must incur added expense to send the 
driver to his or her home State to collect a CDL document. C.R. England 
believed that FMCSA should renew the exemption for an additional 5-year 
period because it results in safer drivers. It allows C.R. England to 
foster a more productive and efficient training environment by allowing 
CLP holders to hone their recently acquired driving skills through on-
the-job training and to begin earning an income right away, producing 
immediate benefits for the driver, the carrier, and the economy as a 
whole.

Public Comments

    In response to the notice renewing the exemption, the Agency 
received six docket comments from truck drivers, driver-trainers, and 
other individuals, all opposing that decision. These respondents do not 
believe that it is safe for a CLP holder to operate a CMV without the 
supervision of a CDL driver-trainer in the front seat of the vehicle.

FMCSA Response and Decision

    The premise of respondents opposing the exemption is that CLP 
holders lack experience and are safer drivers when observed by a CDL 
driver-trainer who is on duty and in the front seat of the vehicle. The 
fact is that CLP holders who have passed the CDL skills test are 
qualified and eligible to obtain a CDL. If these CLP holders had 
obtained their CLPs and training in their State of domicile, they could 
immediately receive their CDL at the State driver licensing agency and 
begin driving a CMV without any on-board supervision. There is no 
evidence that having a CDL holder accompany a CLP holder who has passed 
the skills test improves safety. Because these drivers have passed the 
CDL skills test, the only thing necessary to obtain the CDL is to visit 
the Department of Motor Vehicles in their State of domicile.
    C.R. England's overall safety performance is reflected in its 
``satisfactory'' safety rating. The exemption is restricted to C.R. 
England's CLP holders who have documentation that they have passed the 
CDL skills test. The exemption will enable these drivers to operate a 
CMV as a team driver without requiring the accompanying CDL holder be 
on duty and in the front seat while the vehicle is moving. FMCSA 
therefore reaffirms its decision to renew the exemption because it will 
likely enable C.R. England drivers to achieve a level of safety 
equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety achieved without 
the exemption (49 CFR 381.305(a)).

Terms and Conditions of the Exemption

Period of the Exemption

    This exemption from the requirements of 49 CFR 383.25(a)(1) is 
effective during the period from June 13, 2017 through June 12, 2022.

Extent of the Exemption

    The exemption is contingent upon C.R. England maintaining USDOT

maintain a valid driver's license and CLP with the required 
endorsements, not be subject to any OOS order or suspension of driving 
privileges, and meet all physical qualifications required by 49 CFR 
part 391.

Preemption

    During the period this exemption is in effect, no State may enforce 
any law or regulation that conflicts with or is inconsistent with the 
exemption with respect to a person or entity operating under the 
exemption (49 U.S.C. 31315(d)).

FMCSA Accident Notification

    C.R. England must notify FMCSA within 5 business days of any

will experience any deterioration of their safety record. However, 
should this

[[Page 48891]]

occur, FMCSA will take all steps necessary to protect the public 
interest, including revocation of the exemption. The FMCSA will 
immediately revoke the exemption for failure to comply with its terms 
and conditions.
