Understanding How U.S. Trucking Regulations Could Impact Your Case

While trucking is certainly an important part in the United States economy, it is equally important that trucking companies and their employees follow strict federal guidelines designed to protect other drivers on the highway. Failure to observe these rules often plays a major role in accidents involving commercial trucks such as tractor-trailers.

Federal laws dictate many aspects of trucking, such as:

  • How long a driver may operate his or her vehicle before taking a rest break
  • The type of training drivers must receive before operating a commercial truck
  • The number of miles a driver may be encouraged to drive within a certain time period
  • Drug and alcohol use for truck drivers — who must adhere to a strict zero tolerance policy
  • Proper upkeep and maintenance of the vehicle
  • How loads are to be stowed and secured on the truck
