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.
