Idaho Truck Laws
From the busy freeways in and around Boise to the two-lane highways that reach from Sandpoint to Pocatello, commercial vehicle traffic throughout Idaho is a daily hazard for motorists. Every year, more than 600 fatal and non-fatal accidents occur on Idaho roadways, leaving hundreds of Idaho residents suffering from a life-changing injury or the loss of a family member. If you represent one of these victims, seek the maximum compensation and add Michael to your legal team to benefit from his extensive knowledge of truck accident law.
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 Moscow may own a truck that only makes in-state deliveries.
The Idaho 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.
