Federal Motor Carrier Lease Agreement

The regulatory evaluation of the 2015 definitive regime focused on the potential safety benefits of rental and exchange obligations for road passenger carriers. [3] There was insufficient data and empirical evidence to establish a measurable quantitative link between leasing and exchange requirements for VCM carrying passengers and improved safety outcomes, such as reduced frequency and/or severity of accidents or lower frequency of infringements. As a result, FMCSA conducted a threshold analysis, also known as a break analysis, to estimate the reduction in falls that are expected to result from the 2015 Final Rule, so that the benefits of the rule can accurately offset the estimated costs of the rule.
