There’s nothing like experience when it comes to understanding the confusing and ever-changing Department of Transportation Safety Regulations. Many companies with transportation-related risks do not have the staff or resources to maintain an effective safety and compliance program cost-effectively. Our experts focus on your company’s fleet safety and compliance needs, allowing you to focus on your core business.
What Does DOT Compliance Mean For Your Company?
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations require every employer to be knowledgeable of and comply with all regulations which are applicable to that motor carrier’s operations.
What constitutes a Commercial Motor Vehicle and do these rules apply to your business?
Commercial motor vehicle means any self-propelled or towed motor vehicle used on a highway in interstate commerce to transport passengers or property when the vehicle:
- Has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating, or gross vehicle weight or gross combination weight, of 10,001 pounds or more, whichever is greater; or
- Is designed or used to transport more than 8 passengers (including the driver) for compensation; or
- Is designed or used to transport more than 15 passengers, including the driver, and is not used to transport passengers for compensation; or
- Is used in transporting material found by the Secretary of Transportation to be hazardous under 49 U.S.C. 5103 and transported in a quantity requiring placarding under regulations prescribed by the Secretary under 49 CFR, subtitle B, chapter I, subchapter C.
In short, if you operate any single truck over 10,000 pounds or operate a single truck that could be hooked to a trailer that combined puts you over 10,000 pounds (i.e. a regular-sized pickup hooked up to a small trailer), you are subject to the rules and regulations established by DOT-FMCSR.
