STATE VS FEDERAL TRUCKING LAWS

State and federal trucking laws are in place to ensure the safety of drivers and passengers using our roads and highways for noncommercial purposes. Serious misconduct and willful violations of rules and regulations could place the commercial truck driver and truck company owners and managers in danger of facing criminal charges.

In cases of oversight or negligence, the truck driver and/or company owners face possible civil litigation, including:

  • Fines
  • Penalties
  • Significant monetary compensation paid to plaintiffs suffering physical injury or financial damages

CALIFORNIA-SPECIFIC LAWS AND REGULATIONS

Like all states, California enforces specific state rules and regulations regarding the commercial transportation of products and materials across state roads and highways. State laws are designed to cover specific state restrictions that federal laws do not address.

California trucking laws are governed by the California Department of Transportation Office of Trucks and Services. In addition to broad regulations covering all commercial freight, various state departments also oversee specific areas of the trucking industry, including:

FEDERAL TRUCK REGULATIONS

The complete posting of federal trucking rules and regulations can be found at the U.S. Department of Transportation official website for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
