Who Oversees Large Truck Safety in the U.S.?


Two federal agencies, along with individual state agencies, oversee large truck safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) manages truck equipment matters and The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces safety regulations. To learn more about these agencies, you can visit their websites.

The attorneys at Parsons Behle & Latimer can help you to navigate the complex federal and state laws that govern large trucks, and can present violations of these state and federal laws (as well as violations of a company’s own internal safety rules) in a way that is both understandable and compelling.
