The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has exempted another 34 drivers from federal vision requisions and has proposed to exempt 62 more.

As in all previous cases, the drivers have impaired vision in one eye and at least three years of experience operating a commercial vehicle with the impairment (drivers who don't meet federal vision requirements may still operate in some states.) They also have safe driving records for at least three years prior to their applications for exemptions.
The exemptions are good for two years, during which time the drivers must undergo regular physical and vision exams.
Lists of drivers receiving exemptions and those proposed for exemptions were published in the April 14 Federal Register which can be accessed on the Internet at www.nara.gov/fedreg/.
For more information about vision exemptions contact Sandra Zywokarte, Office of Bus and Truck Standards and Operations, (202) 366-2987.
