In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval and invites public comment. The FMCSA requests approval to revise an ICR entitled, ``Motor Carrier Identification Report,'' which is used to identify FMCSA regulated entities, help prioritize the agency's activities, aid in assessing the safety outcomes of those activities, and for statistical purposes.
Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Vision
FMCSA announces its decision to renew the exemptions from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for 25 individuals. FMCSA has statutory authority to exempt individuals from the vision requirement if the exemptions granted will not compromise safety. The Agency has concluded that granting these exemption renewals will provide a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety maintained without the exemptions for these drivers.
FMCSA Policy on Calculating Crash Rates and Driver, Vehicle, and Hazardous Materials Out-of-Service Rates and the Top 30 Percent of the National Average Under 49 CFR 385.407
FMCSA may not issue a hazardous materials safety permit to a motor carrier that has a crash rate, driver, vehicle or hazardous material out-of-service rate in the top 30 percent of the national average pursuant to 49 CFR 385.407. This document states the FMCSA policy on calculating motor carrier crash rates, and driver, vehicle, and hazardous material out-of-service rates that represent the top 30 percent of the national average as indicated in the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). The document explains how FMCSA calculates the top thirty percent of the national average and how it calculates whether a single motor carrier falls within the top thirty percent of the national average in each of these categories. The document restates without change the FMCSA policy that has been publicly available on its Web site since January 2005.
Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Renewals; Vision
FMCSA previously announced its decision to renew the exemptions from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for 25 individuals. FMCSA has statutory authority to exempt individuals from the vision requirement if the exemptions granted will not compromise safety. The Agency has reviewed the comments submitted in response to the previous announcement and concluded that granting these exemptions will provide a level of safety that will be equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety maintained without the exemptions by these drivers.
