Notice of application for exemption; request for comments.
FMCSA announces that it has received an application from Allied Beverage Group L.L.C. (Allied) for an exemption from the requirement that short-haul drivers utilizing the records of duty status (RODS) exception return to their normal work-reporting location within 12 hours of coming on duty. Allied requests that their company drivers be allowed to use the short-haul exception but return to their work-reporting location within 14 hours instead of the usual 12 hours. The requested exemption would apply to all of Allied's drivers who operate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) beverage trucks. FMCSA requests public comment on Allied's application for exemption.
