Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Exemption Renewal for Lytx, Inc.

Notice of renewal of exemption; request for comments.
FMCSA renews Lytx, Inc.'s (Lytx) (previously DriveCam, Inc.) \1\ exemption which allows the placement of video event recorders within the swept area of the windshields on commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). Motor carriers may continue to use the video event recorders mounted in the windshield area to increase safety through (1) identification and remediation of risky driving behaviors such as distracted driving and drowsiness; (2) enhanced monitoring of passenger behavior for CMVs in passenger service; and (3) enhanced collision review and analysis. The Agency has concluded that granting this exemption renewal will maintain a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level of safety achieved without the exemption. However, the Agency requests comments and information on the exemption, especially from anyone who believes this standard will not be maintained. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
