New Rules Aimed At Reducing California Trucking Accidents Receive Mixed Support

Skip Navigation LinksHome > Practice Areas > Truck Accident Litigation > New Rules Aimed At Reducing California Truck Accidents Receive Mixed Support

The federal government is considering a new truck driving rule that would reduce the number of hours a truck driver is allowed to stay on the road. The U.S. Department of Transportation has proposed limiting the total hours allowed to work in a day to 14-hours including breaks and loading/unloading.

The total driving hours allowed would be reduced from 11 to 10 hours. The proposed changes were announced in December and a final determination will be made in July.

If you have been injured in a truck accident, contact an experienced Sacramento truck accident lawyer.

Truck accidents are some of the most dangerous roadway accidents. Due to the sheer size of 18-wheelers and other big rigs when accidents do occur, they are often serious, even fatal. Driver fatigue as the result of long hours and employer demands are leading causes of truck crashes.

Despite the concerns for safety, those in the trucking industry only have mild support for the new hours, citing scheduling conflicts and trucker difficulty in accomplishing the deliveries in the set amount of time.

As a Sacramento personal injury lawyer, I support these measures. Steps taken to improve the safety of California roadways benefit all those traveling throughout the state. For more information, or if you have been injured in a California trucking accident, contact the experienced truck accident lawyer and personal injury lawyer at Sette Law Office for a free consultation.
