Trucking safety laws are very strict, dictating specific rules involving everything from weight restrictions on a truck to the amount of hours that a driver can drive in a day. These rules are put in place to protect both the driver and other motorists on the road. If a driver violates the law and causes an accident, the driver and the trucking company may be held liable for the accident.

Trucking Industry And Violation Of Trucking Law
The trucking industry is governed not only by state law, but also federal law. The law gives truckers certain responsibilities, which they are required to take tests for. Trucking companies must also have their trucks go through regular maintenance checks. Truckers must keep logs of their journeys. These laws are designed to keep all drivers on the road safe. If any one of these rules is violated, there can be a greater risk of an accident.
