What are the federal motor carrier safety regulations?
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are the regulations that all interstate and within state – so truckers that aren’t just within your state, but truckers that go from state to state – they are subject to those regulations. And they’re regulations that talk about time requirements, you can’t go over a certain amount of hours per day, you have to rest for a certain amount of time when you do make a stop. And, unfortunately, some trucking companies push their truckers so hard that they’re violating those standards, truckers are falling asleep while on the road and they’re not paying attention, and a lot of it has to do with fatigue. And so a personal injury attorney should be well versed in those federal regulations.
