Hours of Service of Drivers: RJR Transportation, Inc. (RJR); Application for Exemption
Notice of final disposition.
FMCSA announces its decision to grant the application of RJR Transportation, Inc. (RJR) for an exemption to increase the 100 air- mile radius in ``short-haul operations'' to 150 air miles for its drivers. RJR requested the exemption for all its operators of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) to enable the drivers not exceeding the 150 air-mile radius to utilize time records instead of a record of duty status (RODS) for that day. FMCSA has analyzed the exemption application and the public comments and has determined that the exemption, subject to the terms and conditions imposed, will likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.
