Federal Motor Carrier Safety RegulationsExpert in all areas of the FMCSR’s, including hiring standards and drug/alcohol testing requirements
All drivers are required to be familiar with and follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR’s). The regulations are generally very specific, and at times seem complex. They were put into place and are continuously updated in order to ensure that only properly-maintained trucks operated in a safe and appropriate manner, with a paramount concern for public safety in all operations and locales. When the weight and momentum advantage often 40 tons for a truck, compared to 2 tons for a car, SUV, or pickup truck, it is imperative for commercial drivers to always be fully aware and employ proper defensive driving techniques.
