Truck drivers and trucking companies are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). They are subject to strict rules regarding how long drivers can remain on the road without rest, vehicle maintenance, training requirements and technology use behind the wheel.

Due to the vast size difference between 18-wheelers and a standard car, the injuries from truck accidents can be particularly traumatic.
