Texans and Texas truck accident lawyers are especially concerned about trucking safety due to the number of trucks on the freeways in Texas, for example on US IH-35, which has large amounts of trucking traffic through Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas. Houston sees significant trucking traffic through US IH-10 and IH-45. Fortunately, 2009 brought good news for truck safety in Texas, which came from the U.S. Government's Department of Transportation. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which regulates trucking safety, recently began to enforce a new rule requiring higher safety standards for newly registered truck and bus companies. This is especially good news for Texans due to the number of truck accidents involving injury and death that occur in Texas. The safety standards covered by the rule include drug and alcohol testing, hours of service rules, driver qualifications, and vehicle condition. A company that violates any of 16 essential safety standards will automatically fail its safety audit. A link to the FMCSA press release on the rule is here:
