Download as PDF 23592 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 28, 2020 / Notices jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES stakeholders that seek to address issues under the Board’s jurisdiction that are not otherwise specifically provided for under the Board’s other regulatory provisions. Number of Respondents: Approximately four. Estimated Time Per Response: 25 hours. Frequency: On occasion. In calendar years 2017–2019, approximately four petitions of this type were filed with the Board per year. Total Burden Hours (annually including all respondents): 100 hours (estimated hours per petition (25) × total number of petitions (4)). Total ‘‘Non-hour Burden’’ Cost: $280 (estimated non-hour burden cost per petition ($70) × total number of petitions (four)). Needs and Uses: Under 49 U.S.C. 1321 and 49 CFR part 1117 (the Board’s catch-all petition provision), shippers, railroads, and the public in general may seek relief (such as waiver of the Board’s regulations) not otherwise specifically provided for under the Board’s other regulatory provisions. Under section 1117.1, such petitions should contain three items: (a) A short, plain statement of jurisdiction, (b) a short, plain statement of petitioner’s claim, and (c) request for relief. The collection by the Board of these petitions that parties choose to file enables the Board to more fully meet its statutory duty to regulate the rail industry. Under the PRA, a federal agency that conducts or sponsors a collection of information must display a currently valid OMB control number. A collection of information, which is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c), includes agency requirements that persons submit reports, keep records, or provide information to the agency, third parties, or the public. Section 3507(b) of the PRA requires, concurrent with an agency’s submitting a collection to OMB for approval, a 30-day notice and comment period through publication in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information.

FMCSA will consider all comments and material received during the comment period and may grant or not grant this application based on your comments. II. Legal Basis FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31315(b) to grant exemptions from certain Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). 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 PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23593 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 safety analyses and public comments submitted, 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 reasons for denying or granting the application and, if granted, the name of the person or class of persons receiving the exemption, and the regulatory provision from which the exemption is granted. The notice must also specify the effective period (up to 5 years) and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)). III. Background Currently, 49 CFR 395.1(e) provides exceptions from the requirement to prepare records of duty status (RODS) for drivers operating in short-haul operations, provided certain conditions are satisfied. Section 395.8(a)(1)(iii)(A)(1) allows motor carriers to require drivers to record drivers’ duty status mannually rather than use an ELD, if the drivers are operating commercial motor vehicles ‘‘in a manner requiring completion of a record of duty status on not more than 8 days within any 30-day period.’’ Taken together, drivers operating in short-haul operations are not required to prepare RODS, except for the days when they do not satisfy all the criteria provided in 49 CFR 395.1(e). They may prepare paper RODS for those occasions as long as RODS are not used more than eight days in a 30-day period. For operations where the short-haul drivers fail to satisfy the applicable criteria more than eight days in a 30-day period, the carrier and its drivers would be required to use ELDs. Right-A-Way is requesting an exemption from the requirement to use ELDs when its drivers do not satisfy all the criteria for the short-haul exception to the RODS requirement, more than eight days in a 30-day period. The exemption would enable the company’s short-haul drivers to use paper RODS rather than ELDs for more than eight days in a 30 consecutive day period. A copy of the exemption application is included in the docket referenced at the beginning of this notice.

PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 390.15(b), requires motor carriers to make certain specified records and information pertaining to CMV accidents available to an authorized representative or special agent of FMCSA upon request or as part of an inquiry. Motor carriers are required to maintain an ‘‘accident register’’ consisting of information concerning all ‘‘accidents’’ involving their CMVs (49 CFR 390.15(b) (see ‘‘Definition: Accident’’ below). The following information must be recorded for each accident: date, location, driver name, number of injuries, number of fatalities, and whether certain dangerous hazardous materials were released. In addition, the motor carrier must maintain copies of all accident reports required by insurers or governmental entities. Motor carriers must maintain this information for three years after the date of the accident. Section 390.15 does not require motor carriers to submit any information or records to FMCSA or any other party. This ICR supports the DOT strategic goal of safety. By requiring motor carriers to gather and record information concerning CMV accidents, FMCSA is strengthening its ability to assess the safety performance of motor carriers. This information is a valuable resource in Agency initiatives to prevent, and reduce the severity of, CMV crashes. The Agency has modified several of its estimates for this ICR. The estimated number of annual respondents has decreased substantially, while the numbers of responses, burden hours, and annual costs to respondents have increased. Explanations for these changes are summarized below. The previously-approved number of annual respondents is 866,122. This estimate was based on records of all interstate and intrastate motor carriers with ‘‘recent activity’’ in the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) for calendar year 2015. However, not all of these motor carriers experience a DOT-reportable crash every calendar year. To more accurately estimate the annual number of respondents, we looked at the carriers associated with crashes reported in MCMIS for calendar years 2016 through 2018 and calculated the annual average. This gave us a significantly reduced estimate of 89,270 respondents per year. The previously-approved burden is 36,157 burden hours. The Agency increases its estimate to 55,425 burden hours. The text of section 390.15(b) is unchanged; the increase in burden hours does not reflect changes in the requirements for accident E:\FR\FM\28APN1.SGM 28APN1

or on behalf of a third party and then submit. If you submit your 
comments by mail or hand delivery, submit them in an unbound format, no 
larger than 8\1/2\ by 11 inches, suitable for copying and electronic

reached the facility, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed postcard 
or envelope. FMCSA will consider all comments and material received 
during the comment period and may grant or not grant this application 
based on your comments.

II. Legal Basis

    FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31315(b) to grant exemptions 
from certain Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). 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 safety analyses and public comments submitted, 
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 reasons for denying or granting the application 
and, if granted, the name of the person or class of persons receiving 
the exemption, and the regulatory provision from which the exemption is 
granted. The notice must also specify the effective period (up to 5 
years) and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The 
exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)).

III. Background

    Currently, 49 CFR 395.1(e) provides exceptions from the requirement 
to prepare records of duty status (RODS) for drivers operating in 
short-haul operations, provided certain conditions are satisfied. 
Section 395.8(a)(1)(iii)(A)(1) allows motor carriers to require drivers 
to record drivers' duty status mannually rather than use an ELD, if the 
drivers are operating commercial motor vehicles ``in a manner requiring 
completion of a record of duty status on not more than 8 days within 
any 30-day period.'' Taken together, drivers operating in short-haul 
operations are not required to prepare RODS, except for the days when 
they do not satisfy all the criteria provided in 49 CFR 395.1(e). They 
may prepare paper RODS for those occasions as long as RODS are not used 
more than eight days in a 30-day period. For operations where the 
short-haul drivers fail to satisfy the applicable criteria more than 
eight days in a 30-day period, the carrier and its drivers would be 
required to use ELDs.
    Right-A-Way is requesting an exemption from the requirement to use 
ELDs when its drivers do not satisfy all the criteria for the short-
haul exception to the RODS requirement, more than eight days in a 30-
day period. The exemption would enable the company's short-haul drivers 
to use paper RODS rather than ELDs for more than eight days in a 30 
consecutive day period. A copy of the exemption application is included 
in the docket referenced at the beginning of this notice.

IV. Request for Comments

    In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(6), FMCSA requests public 
comment from all interested persons on Right-A-Way's application for an 
exemption. All comments received before the close of business on the 
comment closing date indicated at the beginning of this notice will be

location listed under the ``Addresses'' section of this notice. 
Comments received after the comment closing date will be filed in the 
public docket and will be considered to the extent practicable. In 
addition to late comments, FMCSA will also continue to file, in the 
public docket, relevant information that becomes available after the 
comment closing date. Interested persons should continue to examine the
