    Seat belt waiver?

    Has anyone heard of getting a seat belt waiver so you don't have to legally wear your seat belt while operating a CMV?

    My thought is that if you have a medical condition that qualifies you for a waiver, then you'd likely need a waiver to medically qualify to drive..? Catch 22?

    How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    he doesn't happen to have it with him. My guess is he's got a waiver for his car, but I dont' think it would apply to a CMV. The sample for IA states not for use with a CMV. I'm thinking others states would be the same.

    Interesting! I have a friend with a medical exemption for window tint I would like to have. Between seatbelts and window tint exemptions these cops might have to find a legitimate excuse to write me a ticket.

    I get the impression we will not be offering this gentleman employment. I've been wrong before but I wouldn't hire him, company policy dictates you need to wear your seatbelt.

    What is the real reason for the waiver?

    I guess he's got some kind of leads coming out of his back that go to his legs? I didn't get the details.

    Sounds like you're buying into a future workers comp claim as soon as he's physically stressed at work...

    And without the protection and procedures of the Americans With Disabilities Act, he's not covered to guarantee hiring, and you're not covered to guarantee not getting whacked with some payouts.
