If you have questions regarding viewing or submitting material to the docket, contact Docket Operations, (202) 366–9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 21, 2020 (85 FR 31021), FMCSA published a notice granting a limited 5year exemption to allow motor carriers to mount the Lytx ADAS lower in the windshield than is currently permitted by the Agency’s regulations. In its exemption application, Lytx stated that the ADAS needs to be mounted approximately 204 mm (8 inches) below the upper edge of the windshield wipers to utilize a mounting location that allows optimal functionality of the camera system. In evaluating the Lytx application and the public comments received, FMCSA agreed that the camera system needs to be mounted in this location because the size of the camera system precludes mounting it (1) higher in the windshield, and (2) within 4 inches from the top of the area swept by the windshield wipers to comply with the regulations. SUMMARY: Any motor carrier utilizing this exemption must notify FMCSA within 5 business days of any accident (as defined in 49 CFR 390.5), involving any of the motor carrier’s CMV drivers operating under the terms of this exemption. The notification must include the following information: a. Name of Exemption: ‘‘SC&RA’’; b. Name of operating motor carrier and USDOT number; c. Date of the accident; d. City or town, and State, in which the accident occurred, or closest to the accident scene; e. Driver’s name and license number and State of issuance; f.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 21, 2020 (85 FR 31021), FMCSA 
published a notice granting a limited 5-year exemption to allow motor 
carriers to mount the Lytx ADAS lower in the windshield than is 
currently permitted by the Agency's regulations. In its exemption 
application, Lytx stated that the ADAS needs to be mounted 
approximately 204 mm (8 inches) below the upper edge of the windshield 
wipers to utilize a mounting location that allows optimal functionality 
of the camera system. In evaluating the Lytx application and the public 
comments received, FMCSA agreed that the camera system needs to be 
mounted in this location because the size of the camera system 
precludes mounting it (1) higher in the windshield, and (2) within 4 
inches from the top of the area swept by the windshield wipers to 
comply with the regulations.
    However, in the ``Terms and Conditions for the Exemption'' section 
of the May 21 notice of final disposition, FMCSA inadvertently stated 
that during the temporary exemption period, motor carriers using the 
Lytx ADAS must ensure that the bottom edge of the camera housing is 
mounted such that it is approximately 8 inches below the upper edge of 
the windshield, instead of 8 inches below the upper edge of the area 
swept by the windshield wipers.
    The corrected text should read ``During the temporary exemption 
period, motor carriers will be allowed to operate CMVs equipped with 
Lytx's ADAS in the approximate center of the top of the windshield and 
such that the bottom edge of the camera housing is approximately 8 
inches below the upper edge of the area swept by the windshield wipers, 
outside of the driver's and passenger's normal sight lines to the road 
ahead, highway signs and signals, and all mirrors.''
