Examining the Seizure Standard for CMV Drivers

This research would examine whether and to what extent the current physical qualifications relating to seizures [49 CFR § 391.41(b)(8)] impact safety and whether the standard should be removed or changed. In addition to reviewing the literature, the research team may seek to evaluate the safety performance of drivers who have been granted hearing exemptions by FMCSA.
