Federal Truck Regulations
FMCSA, otherwise known as The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is an agency under the US Department of Transportation that oversees all the regulations that workers in the transportation industry must abide by. Their mission is to ensure driver safety, not only for the truckers, but for everyone who shares the road with them. Any laws initiated to trucking companies can be organized through FMCSA and enforced by the agency.
Taking Action Against Truck Violations
It is rather simple to file reports or make complaints to FMCSA. They will take calls at the number provided on their official website or through an online complaint form. You can also take legal action if you were injured due to a truck driver violating FMCSA guidelines.
Some of the most common FMCSA violations include:
- Driving with a blood-alcohol-content percentage over 0.04%
- Any positive drug or controlled alcohol testing
- Defective vehicle equipment
- Weight and cargo violations
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Exceeding daily and weekly driving limits

It is unfortunate to say that truck driving violations can happen frequently. Truck drivers can engage in reckless driving behaviors for any number of reasons, whether it be to meet certain deadlines or due negligence. Sometimes the trucking companies themselves can impose unethical rules on their drivers in order to save time, or work their employees beyond their capacity.
