The Responsibilities of Truck Drivers and Companies
Truck drivers have the same duty to drive in a safe and responsible manner as all other motorists. As a result, if a truck driver is involved in an accident and receives a citation for speeding, failing to yield, or any moving violation, the citation could become powerful evidence of negligence in a truck wreck injury lawsuit.

In commercial trucking, there are maximum weight limits that change depending upon the number of axles on the truck, and drivers are only allowed to drive for a certain number of hours per day.
