Commercial Trucks Come in All Shapes
When people think of a commercial truck, most people think of a large 18-wheeler tractor-trailer. Nearly all commercial vehicles using our public roads to conduct business are subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA). Violating any of the regulations for the truck's size and use means the owner can be held liable for injuries or death arising from an accident.
Nearly every industry relies on some type of commercial vehicle to deliver products or services. To drive a commercial truck, the driver must pass a class C license test and undergo regular training about road safety and laws. The FMCSA recognizes that in many ways, smaller vehicles have many of the same safety and maintenance concerns shared by the largest big rigs and flatbeds on our roads. In addition, delivery vans and smaller commercial trucks often operate in an urban environment, putting pedestrians at greater risk.
