They are not actually exempt.

Really? Explain §390.3(f)(2).

Exemption only if the vehicle is owned outright by the "government".
If a trucking company is under a contract with a "government", then they
are not exempt.
For instance, US military vehicles are exempt.

Let me copy and paste the OP's question so you don't have to strain
your eyes.

> Why are Government employees exempt...

Horrible back peddle richard. If a trucking company is under contract
with the government, then the driver isn't a government employee. Next

I think you just shot yourself.
You said, "isn't" when you meant to say "is".
Which is what I said. As a trucker, I have hauled loads for the US Navy,
does that make me a government employee? I don't think so.
