Hours of Service of Drivers: Application for Exemption; Power and Communication Contractors Association (PCCA)
Document Number: 2017-19512
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-09-14
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that the Power and Communication Contractors Association (PCCA) has requested an exemption from the requirement that a motor carrier install and require each of its drivers to use an electronic logging device (ELD) to record the driver's hours-of-service (HOS) no later than December 18, 2017. PCCA requests the exemption for all operators of a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the power and communications construction industry. Construction contractors spend considerable time working off-road on varying jobsites, and a single CMV may have several different drivers over the course of a day, moving the vehicle short distances around the jobsite. Because of the limited time within a workday that their drivers spend driving on public roads, PCCA states that ELD and record of duty status (RODS) requirements for drivers in their industries do not result in a significant safety benefit. PCCA's drivers would remain subject to the standard HOS limits and maintain a paper RODS for HOS compliance. PCCA believes that the exemption, if granted, will achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent the exemption. FMCSA requests public comment on PCCA's application for exemption.

The first exemption would enable drivers engaged in the transportation of asphalt and related materials to use 30 minutes or more of on-duty ``waiting time'' to satisfy the requirement for the 30-minute rest break, provided they do not perform any other work during the break. The second exemption would allow these drivers to use the short-haul exception but return to their work- reporting location within 14 hours instead of the usual 12 hours. FMCSA requests public comment on NAPA's application for exemptions.

Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; Daimler Trucks North America (Daimler)
Document Number: 2017-17393
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-08-17
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to grant an exemption to Daimler Trucks North America (Daimler) for one of its commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. Daimler requested a 5-year exemption from the Federal requirement to hold a U.S. commercial driver's license (CDL) for Mr. Philipp Helbing, a project engineer for the Daimler Trucks and Bus Division. Mr. Helbing holds a valid German commercial license and wants to test-drive Daimler vehicles on U.S. roads to better understand product requirements for these systems in ``real world'' environments, and verify results. Daimler believes the requirements for a German commercial license ensure that holders of the license will likely achieve a level of safety equal to or greater than that of drivers who hold a U.S. State-issued CDL.

Document Number: 2017-17392
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-08-17
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to grant Daimler Trucks North America's (Daimler) application for renewal of an exemption from the requirement for a commercial driver's license (CDL) for one of its commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers, Sven Ennerst.

The renewal allows Mr. Ennerst, a Daimler engineering executive who holds a German commercial license, to continue to test-drive Daimler CMVs on U.S. roads to improve Daimler's understanding of product requirements in ``real world'' environments. FMCSA has concluded that this exemption would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved if Mr. Ennerst were required to obtain a U.S. CDL.

The reinstatement of this ICR is necessary, and FMCSA's responsibility to ensure consumer protection in the transportation of household goods (HHG).
