Unique Electronic Identification of Commercial Motor Vehicles
FMCSA requests public comment on whether the agency should amend the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations to require every commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operating in interstate commerce to be equipped with electronic identification (ID) technology capable of wirelessly communicating a unique ID number when queried by a Federal or State motor carrier safety enforcement personnel. In response to a petition for rulemaking from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), FMCSA is considering such amendments to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the roadside inspection program by more fully enabling enforcement agencies to focus their efforts at high-risk carriers and drivers.
Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; Navistar, Inc. (Navistar)
FMCSA announces its decision to grant an exemption from the commercial driver's license (CDL) requirements to Navistar, Inc. (Navistar) for a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver, Mr. Anders Bj[ouml]rkman, employed as an engineer by Navistar's business partner Scania AB (Scania). Navistar and Scania are subsidiaries of Germany's TRATON SE. Mr. Bj[ouml]rkman holds a valid Swedish commercial license and wants to test drive Navistar CMVs on U.S. roads to better understand product requirements in ``real world'' environments and verify results. FMCSA reviewed Mr. Bj[ouml]rkman's commercial license records provided by Navistar, and believes the requirements for a Swedish commercial license, and the terms and conditions set forth below, including a Navistar-administered drug and alcohol testing program, will ensure that his operation under this exemption will likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level that would be obtained in the absence of the exemption.
