Truck Maintenance Regulations

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates the commercial trucking industry, including maintenance. Truckers are required to perform their own inspection prior to driving to ensure the truck is in safe operating condition and, if the vehicle has any defects, the trucker must get it properly repaired. If an accident occurs, the trucking company would be held liable.

Some of the maintenance duties that are commonly ignored include:

  • Brake and pad checks
  • Tire checks
  • Trailer control system checks
  • Fluid level check
  • Operating lights check
