Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Application for an Exemption From Grote Industries, LLC

Notice of final disposition; grant of exemption.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its decision to grant Grote Industries, LLC's (Grote) application for a limited 5-year exemption to allow motor carriers operating trailers and van body trucks to install amber brake-activated pulsating warning lamps on the rear of trailers and van body trucks in addition to the steady-burning brake lamps required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). The Agency has determined that granting the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level of safety provided by the regulation.
