Minimum Age for Operating a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) in Interstate Commerce: Jcrane, Inc. (Jcrane), Application for Exemption
The FMCSA announces that it has received from Jcrane, Inc. (Jcrane) an application for an exemption from provisions of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations that require an individual who operates a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) of 10,001 or more pounds Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) in interstate commerce to be a minimum of 21 years of age. The exemption would allow Jcrane's employees who are not yet 21 years of age to legally operate a CMV in interstate commerce. Jcrane states that the granting of the exemption would allow the company to better train crane operators and therefore increase overall safety. The FMCSA requests public comment on Jcrane's application for exemption.
