Truck drivers and trucking companies are liable for the vehicles they operate and the loads that they transport. A big rig or tractor-trailer that is improperly inspected can lead to accidents and various dangerous situations.
The FMCSA or Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has set strict regulations governing the inspection of all commercial vehicles and the inspection of their cargo. Trucking companies are tasked to perform regular inspections of their vehicles, and truck drivers are tasked to inspect the condition of their vehicle before using it. The truck’s systems and mechanical parts must be well maintained and must not present a hazard to both the driver and those on the road.
Trucking companies and truck drivers are also required to adhere to strict truck documentation requirements, including updated licenses, logs, bills of lading, reports, and certificates that must be readily available for company investigation or roadside inspection. This documentation must be accurate in order to prove safe operations of their fleet.
