Regulations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
Federal laws protect drivers in the United States by regulating truckers
on the road. Commercial trucks are massive and weigh many times what a
passenger car weighs. This puts the driver of a conventional vehicle at
an obvious disadvantage when involved in a traffic collision with a large
commercial truck such as tractor-trailer or big rig.
The federal government, through a regulatory body called the Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), has established a network of guidelines
and requirements designed to hold truck drivers and the companies that
hire them accountable. At Schneider Overett, we know how to use FMCSA
regulations in our investigations and case preparations as we work to
obtain you maximum compensation for your injuries after an accident.
These requirements / regulations include:
- Limiting the amount of hours a driver may be on the road / miles he or
she may drive
- Requiring mandatory rest breaks
- Guidelines for vehicle maintenance
- Guidelines for loading
- Zero tolerance policy for drug and alcohol use
