Federal Trucking Regulations

Those involved in the trucking industry must abide by numerous federal and state regulations. The federal regulations can be found in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (49 C.F.R. §§ 350-399).

These regulations govern all vehicles engaged in interstate traffic. These regulations are extensive and can be confusing. An experienced engineer can explain these regulations and how they apply to your truck accident case.
