Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Application for an Exemption From Complete Innovations, Inc.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requests public comment on an application for exemption from Complete Innovations, Inc. (Complete Innovations) to allow its Vision 2.0 device to be mounted lower in the windshield on commercial motor vehicles than is currently permitted.
Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Vision
FMCSA announces its decision to renew exemptions for 102 individuals from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) for interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. The exemptions enable these individuals to continue to operate CMVs in interstate commerce without meeting the vision requirements in one eye.
Hours of Service of Drivers; Parts and Accessories: Application for an Exemption From Cleveland-Cliffs Steel, LLC.
FMCSA requests public comment on an application for exemption submitted by Cleveland-Cliffs Steel, LLC (Cliffs), formerly known as ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor, LLC, to allow its employee-drivers with commercial driver's licenses (CDLs) who transport scrap metal on two trucks between their production and shipping locations on public roads to work up to 16 hours per day and to return to work with less than the mandatory 10 consecutive hours off duty. The exemption is similar to the exemption that allows Cliffs' drivers transporting steel coils to work the same hours of services (HOS). Unlike the steel coil exemption, the scrap metal trucks would comply with the heavy hauler trailer definition, height of rear side marker lights restrictions, tire loading restrictions, and the coil securement requirements in the FMCSRs.
