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
- 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
