Federal Trucking Regulations
WHAT IS YOUR CASE WORTH?
The Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration (FMCSA) is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation. FMCSA aims to reduce injuries and fatalities by imposing regulations on large trucks and buses.
Some of the regulations include requiring drivers to maintain a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL); regulating the hours drivers can be behind the wheel; requiring permits for hazardous material transportation; imposing weight limits on loads and regulating how cargo is loaded; and setting maintenance and inspection standards for vehicles.
