Lawyer Explains Trucking Rules and Regulations

Play Video

Truckers must follow the same rules of the road as everyone else. In addition, there are several other rules and regulations that they must follow.

The first set of rules we discuss are set by the federal government and are known as Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. These regulations govern multiple areas of the trucking industry, including the hiring process and the way that accidents are handled.

The state of Georgia governs truck drivers through the Commercial Driver’s License Manual, also known as the CDL manual. Truck drivers must also follow industry standards. These standards are customs in the trucking industry that establish a standard of care that truckers are expected to follow.

Lastly, truck drivers must also follow the standard operating procedures, or SOPs, included in their company’s policies.
