Who regulates the trucking industry?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that
in 2012, 104,000 people were injured in truck accidents, and nearly 4,000
people were killed. Semi-trucks are massive and they pose a real threat
to motorists nationwide.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was established
within the Department of Transportation in 2000 with the primary mission
of preventing commercial vehicle-related injuries and fatalities.
The FMCSA is the government agency that enforces safety regulations and
targets high-risk trucking companies and drivers. The agency has established
various federal regulations which truck drivers are required to adhere
to in order to maintain the safest driving practices in the truck industry.
Some of these regulations address:
- Driving while fatigued
- Driving while intoxicated
- Hazardous materials
- Cargo securement
In many accident cases, a truck driver violates one of the federal trucking
regulations and causes a catastrophic accident; for example, a truck driver
violates the hours of service rule (HOS), which limits the maximum hours
a truck driver can drive in a day and in a workweek. If a trucker falls
asleep at the wheel, it can spell disaster for other motorists in the
truck's path of destruction.
Other examples of truck driver negligence include: texting while driving,
speeding, impatient driving, and driving an improperly loaded truck.
