Alaska Truck Laws
Motorists in Alaska enjoy one of the lowest truck accident crash rates in the nation. But tanker traffic on highways such as the Interstate A system, and commercial vehicles that service population centers such as Anchorage and Juneau, do account for a negligible number of accidents annually. Every year, dozens of accidents on Alaska roadways leave motorists injured or suffering the loss of a loved one. If you or a family member has been involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle, add Michael to your legal team and rely on an attorney who has helped hundreds of clients across the country earn higher settlement amounts following an accident with a tractor-trailer, tanker, bus or other commercial vehicle.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (Title 49, Parts 350-399) govern all vehicles engaged in interstate traffic.
There are some situations where a tractor-trailer or other commercial motor vehicle is involved in only intrastate travel. For example, an appliance store in Fairbanks may own a truck that only makes in-state deliveries.
The Alaska Department of Public Safety has adopted Title 49, Parts 382, 383, 384, 390, 391, 392, 393, 394, 395, 396, 397, 398, and 399 of the federal regulations.
