FMCSA opts to keep certain hours-of-service rules unenforced

Recently, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration made a decision regarding some controversial provisions of the federal hours-of-service rules for commercial motor vehicles. The provisions regarded what sort of break a CMV driver had to take to trigger a "restart" for weekly hours-of-service rules. The provisions mandated that this break contain two overnight periods (1 a.m. to 5 a.m.).

Truck loads and their impact on traffic safety

Large trucks carry all manner of different loads out on U.S. roads. Whatever type of load a truck is carrying, it is critical for the load to be properly secured. Mistakes when it comes to securing a load, such as not using tie-downs properly, using damaged tie-downs or loading a truck improperly, can create big safety dangers on the roads. For one, they could lead to a truck’s load falling out onto the road. Another possibility is that they could cause a truck’s load to become unbalanced, creating the potential for the truck to become unstable as it moves along.
