Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Application for an Exemption From Netradyne, Inc.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its decision to grant Netradyne, Inc's. (Netradyne) application for a limited 5-year exemption to allow its Driveri[supreg] Dash Cam to be mounted lower in the windshield on commercial motor vehicles (CMV) than is currently permitted. The Agency has determined that lower placement of the Driveri[supreg] Dash Cam would not have an adverse impact on safety and that adherence to the terms and conditions of the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety provided by the regulation.
Hours of Service of Drivers: Mountain Blade Runner Helicopters, LLC; Application for Exemption
FMCSA requests public comment on Mountain Blade Runner Helicopters, LLC's (MBR Helicopters) application for an exemption from two provisions of the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations for its ground support equipment operators. MBR Helicopters requested relief from the 14-hour rule and the requirement that drivers have 10 consecutive hours off duty at the end of the work shift. The exemption would allow MBR Helicopters' ground support equipment operators a 16-hour window within which to complete all driving and enable these operators to use an 8- consecutive hour off-duty break, combined with at least 2 other off- duty hours during the 16-hour window within which driving would be completed, in lieu of taking 10 consecutive hours off duty.
