New Hampshire Truck Laws
New Hampshire boasts numerous highways that serve as transient routes for trucks transporting goods throughout the northeastern United States. Routes such as Interstate 89, Interstate 93 and Interstate 95, despite occupying relatively short spans within the state’s boundaries, serve as major conduits for vehicles traveling the entire East Coast or to in-state centers such as Manchester, Nashua and Concord. Those traffic volumes lead to more than 500 truck-related accidents every year.

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 Concord may own a truck that only makes in-state deliveries.
The New Hampshire 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.
