Title: ●Driver Qualifications; Revising the Vision Standard 
Abstract:

As part of the Agency's ongoing regulatory reform efforts, FMCSA proposes to reduce the burden on monocular vision individuals seeking to operate CMVs in interstate commerce, as well as the motor carriers who employ them, by revising the current physical qualification standards related to vision. Additionally, this action would save the Agency more than $1 million per year in administrative costs associated with processing the paperwork associated with an existing agency exemption program.
