An extension of the rule.
Revised for clarity.
Reporting form simplified.
As part of the new definitions you will note that several make reference to Appendix A. The Appendix to the rule is a legal extension of the rule and has equal weight as the main section of the rule.
Appendix A was revised to provide detail and examples to amplify the key changes made throughout the regulations.
Appendix B - the form for submitting activity was simplified. Submission requirements unchanged.
The student should understand that appendix A has the same force and effect under the law as the main sections of the regulation per FHWA Office of Chief Counsel.
