II. Legal Basis

    FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31315(b) to grant exemptions 
from certain parts of the 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 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)). If the Agency denies the request, it must state the reason 
for doing so. If the decision is to grant the exemption, the notice 
must specify the person or class of persons receiving the exemption and 
the regulatory provision or provisions from which an exemption is 
granted. The notice must 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 381.315(c) and 49 CFR 381.300(b)).

III. Waste Management's Application for Exemption

    The FMCSRs require all exterior lamps (both required lamps and any 
additional lamps) to be steady-burning, except for turn signal lamps, 
hazard warning signal lamps, school bus warning lamps, amber warning 
lamps or flashing warning lamps on tow trucks and commercial motor 
vehicles transporting oversized loads, and warning lamps on emergency 
and service vehicles authorized by State or local authorities. Waste 
Management has applied for an exemption from 49 CFR 393.25(e) to allow 
all of its 106 operating companies to replace the rear high-mounted 
brake lights with red or amber brake-activated pulsating lamps 
positioned in the upper center position, or in an upper dual outboard 
position, in addition to the steady burning brake lamps required by the 
FMCSRs. 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
