How Federal Rules Protects Us From New Mexico Trucking Accidents

New Mexico state law has some pretty comprehensive vehicle and traffic laws.  Many of the statutes have safety in mind.  But when it comes to safety, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) tops them all.  This is a federal agency that has promulgated commercial vehicle regulations which governed everything from equipment to truck driver conduct, even dictating how a truck driver is allowed to spend his or her time over an 8-day period!  These regulations are overwhelmingly meant to safe people and protect them.  Learn how these federal rules protect use from New Mexico trucking accidents from our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers here.

HOW LONG CAN A TRUCK DRIVER DRIVE? ALBUQUERQUE TRUCKING ACCIDENT LAWYER EXPLAINS

Albuquerque Trucking Accident Lawyer Explains the FMCSA Hours of Service Rules on How Long a Truck Driver Could Drive

The shipping and logistics industry is one of the largest industries in the United States. The largest part of this industry is shipping through large commercial vehicles like 18 wheelers, semi tractor trailers, double trailers, big rigs, and other box trucks. As an Albuquerque trucking accident lawyer, we know that the trucking industry is a business with a philosophy of time is money. The faster the delivery, the faster the paychecks. Interstates I-10, I-25, and I-40 play a huge role in interstate commerce and saving time because 18 wheelers traveling from California to the east coast will usually have to travel through New Mexico, especially because Ontario is a huge trucking port. This is particularly true in Albuquerque, where truck drivers can switch from west to east to north and south at the interstate exchange.

We know that trucking is an interstate business, meaning that it crosses many state lines. This is particularly true in New Mexico, where interstate exchange hubs in Albuquerque allow truckers to go from east to west on I-40 to north and south on I-25. This is a critical juncture that many truckers from Ontario, California work through this exchange, as do many other truckers from across the country. As an Albuquerque trucking accident lawyer, we know that this is both essential to trucking but also dangerous as Albuquerque residents as this is the largest city in New Mexico. It is dangerous because of a possible hours of service violation.
