Regulations Improve and Evolve From FMCSA

Companies Creating New Businesses to Skip Regulations

The FMCSA announced changes that are going to be implemented in the near-future regarding driver training, Service rules, emission regulations, etc. These changes will look to act as an added safety for the driver, and the truck. Some of these changed look to prevent a loophole for carriers to avoid inspections, by starting a new business under a different name. Carriers would often drive on back-roads to avoid inspection, cutting time and arriving early to their destination. While it may seem unfair that breaking the rules makes you look like a more efficient agency, the extra weight checks and stops are their to ensure everyones safety on the road, not just the truckers.
