Truck accidents can pose severe risk on the roadway

For drivers on the roadways in Texas, sharing the highway with large trucks and 18-wheelers can be an unnerving experience. The massive size and weight of these vehicles mean that they can pose a particular threat to smaller cars, light trucks and motorcycles, and a crash could lead to severe personal injuries or even fatalities. This means that it can be important for drivers to be particularly cautious around large semi-trucks in order to protect themselves from negligent or dangerous driving.

OOIDA petition seeks change to hours of service rule

Commercial truck drivers in Texas should be aware that the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association has proposed a major change in break times for 14-hour work clocks. The association has submitted a petition to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requesting that drivers are able to have up to three straight off-duty hours during the 14 hours they are working. It is asking that drivers be allowed to pause their daily work clock and that the 30-minute rest time requirement that is currently in place be eliminated.
