New Trucking Regulations But Same Old Problem

New Trucking Regulations But Same Old Problem

New trucking regulations implemented by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration have been released, but there’s a problem. Just like the old regulations, the new ones permit an 11 hour daily driving limit. Consumer groups had pushed for a 10 hour per day driving limit. More than 4,000 people a year are killed in big truck accidents. Thirty to forty percent of these accidents can be attributed, at least in part, to fatigued trucks drivers. Some research suggests the likelihood of an accident doubles after 8 hours of driving. Yet, the FMCSA persists on permitting an 11 hour a day driving limit. So, you can expect more of the same on U.S. highways: trucker fatigue and catastrophic collisions resulting in severe injuries and needless deaths. If you or a loved one is involved in a truck accident, you need an experienced truck accident attorney. Colling Gilbert Wright attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable about all motor vehicle accidents, and especially truck accidents. Call us for a free consultation.
