Who regulates trucking safety in California?

California has one of the highest numbers of trucks present on its highways throughout the entire country. In total, trucks travel around 30 million miles every day on California roads and freeways. The California government has delegated the California Highway Patrol the duty to regulate all of that trucking activity. To meet that goal, the CHP has devised a program that combines education, enforcement and partnerships with industry to improve safety and save lives.

One of the pillars of CHPs plan to improve safety is through vehicle inspections. The CHP inspects motor carrier and terminals for proper safety standards. The results of those inspections can be found on the CHP website.

Truck drivers and companies are required to adhere to all relevant state and federal laws relating to commercial motor vehicles. The full language of inspection requirements can also be found on the CHP website. They cover a variety of topics including maintenance of trucks and buses, compliance checklists, and disability access technologies.

If you were injured in a collision with a truck then you may want to speak to an attorney. Accidents involving trucks can be deceptively complicated from determining the actual party to sue and recover damages from to prosecuting the case. Trucks are controlled by a variety of entities all with competing stakes and all with an interest to confuse your chances at litigation. An attorney can work through that confusion to get you the compensation you are entitled to from the people or entities that can pay it.
