According to News Channel 5 Nashville, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”) has ordered a Tennessee trucking company to cease all trucking operations immediately for failing to follow federal regulations. The company is Three Angel Farms, a company that transports animals such as horses on Tennessee highways. This decision came after the company violated multiple trucking regulations. The company hired drivers without commercial trucking licenses, failed to subject drivers to adequate drug tests, and failed to properly maintain its trucks. The FMCSA described the company as an “imminent hazard to public safety.”
Trucking accident cases can be complex due to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, specific rules that commercial truck companies and drivers must follow. For example, truck drivers are limited to a certain number of on-duty driving hours each day. Truck drivers must maintain proper driver’s licenses. Truck drivers must also keep detailed logs of where they travel. Finally, truck drivers may not drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It is up to trucking companies to enforce these rules. In a Tennessee trucking accident case, it is important to have in-depth knowledge of these rules and understand how these rules may be broken.
