Truck accidents are very different than other traffic accidents. Trucks are subject to federal and state rules and regulations, therefore, in the investigation it’s important to find out whether the truck driver broke any rules on the road to meet their delivery deadlines and/or to try to stay ahead of schedule. In Florida, there are load limits for every type of truck. Under certain circumstances, trucks can obtain a permit for oversize or overweight conditions. Some of the other rules and regulations mentioned in the Florida Highway Patrol Commercial Vehicle Manual are the following:
- All commercial motor vehicle drivers are required to have a logbook unless they follow a series of other rules that would exempt them from having the logbook
- Drivers cannot drive after driving 11 hours after 10 consecutive hours off-duty
- Drivers cannot drive after being on-duty 14 hours after 10 consecutive hours off-duty
- Drivers cannot drive after being on-duty 60 hours in seven consecutive days or 70 hours in eight consecutive days (34 or more consecutive hours re-sets and restarts the 7/8 day period).
