The FMCSA announces that its Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC) issued a report to the Agency on September 2, 2009, concerning Task 09-03 regarding improving the existing processes, procedures, and requirements for ensuring that new entrant motor carriers are knowledgeable about Federal safety regulations prior to beginning operations in interstate commerce.
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 26 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 commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers.
