New Trucking Regulations

The Federal Register shows a new federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation being proposed, FR Doc E8-2605:

"SUMMARY: FMCSA announces its decision to renew the exemptions from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for 20 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."

DATES: This decision is effective March 5, 2008. Comments must be
received on or before March 14, 2008.
