Improving the safety of commercial vehicles and drivers is the primary goal of the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). They accomplish this by establishing and enforcing a set of rules and regulations that must be followed.
Your company’s challenge is to stay current with the rules, regulations, and updates, not only to stay in compliance with the law but, more importantly, to keep you and other drivers safe.
Your responsibility, as a commercial driver, is to learn and understand the qualifications and requirements set out by the DOT Rules and Regulations.
Understanding and complying with these regulations will:
Reduce the possibility of driver error.
Reduce fatigue and drowsy driving.
Potentially reduce accidents, and
Keep you from financial penalties or loss of your commercial driver’s license.
