Truck Regulation Violations

Large commercial 18-wheelers carry an enormous amount of weight, and when they are traveling at moderate to high speeds, the danger for collision is immense. An accident involving a smaller vehicle can be deadly, or at the very least, cause significant bodily harm and property damage. For this reason, the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) has created truck regulations for vehicle maintenance, speed and driver sobriety to help prevent accidents. That doesn’t mean that truck drivers always obey the regulations, however. Many truck drivers attempt to increase the number of runs they complete by driving faster, putting others on the road at risk.
