Federal Trucking Laws and Regulations

Because large trucks can cause such catastrophic damage to other motorists on the road when an accident occurs, truck drivers are required by law to follow more rules than other motor vehicles both on and off the road. One of the most notable rules is called the hours-of-service regulation. These set of rules were established primarily to prevent fatigued driving, one of the major causes of truck accidents, thus these laws are aimed at ensuring that truck drivers are not overworked and get an adequate amount of sleep and rest before and during each workday.

According to this law truck drivers:

  • Can work a maximum of14 hours in a single workday, but, of these 14 hours only 11 hours can be spent driving. The remaining time spent on rest or meal breaks
  • Must rest for at least 10 consecutive hours before beginning a new day at work
  • Truck drivers are required to take days off work at regular intervals

Unfortunately, whether due to negligence or pressure from the trucking company’s drivers work for these rules are not always followed which can lead to truck accidents. If you have been injured, don’t wait to get help! Our team can conduct a thorough investigation into your accident to determine the cause as well as who is liable.
