This handbook of transportation industry rules and regulations will arm professional drivers with the knowledge they need to avoid penalties and infractions when driving coast-to-coast and state-to-state. Trucking Rules and Regulations: A Reference Guide to Transportation teaches variations in interstate laws for the education and preparation of drivers for over-the-road duty. It is written in a user-friendly style that provides explanations for many of the issues and terms relative and specific to local, state, and federal traffic policies in each of the 50 states including Hawaii and Alaska. Coverage has been compiled from numerous sources and includes regulations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association, making this book an essential reference for carriers and interstate truckers alike.
