Your Scranton Wilkes-Barre Tractor Trailer Lawyer – Driving Limitations

Date: April 10, 2012

If the guy or girl driving that 18,000 pound tractor trailer is nodding in and out of sleep, you may have a big problem.  For this reason, the U.S. Department of Transportation has compiled the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.  Per Section 395.3(a)(1), No motor carrier shall permit or require any driver to drive … more than 11 cumulative hours following 10 consecutive hours off duty.  This rule helps to protect the public from tractor trailer drivers who are forced to drive too long.  If you have been involved in a serious or catastrophic accident with a tractor trailer, call the 13 personal injury lawyers at DLP.  We are well versed and trained in this field and will be able to help you and your family with our significant experience.  Remember: Injury? Call DLP!
