Truck Safety Laws

Federal and state trucking laws can help make our roads safer, but only if drivers and trucking companies are properly educated and existing laws are strictly enforced. Too often, companies push drivers to violate hours of service rules, weight limits, and other trucking laws in order to meet tight deadlines. When drivers are put under this type of pressure, they can make dangerous, even deadly mistakes on the road.

Legislators have proposed several new rules that would help save thousands of lives on our roads every year. A brief overview of these new proposals is listed below. For a list of regulations specific to your state, visit your local Department of Transportation (DOT) website.
