Wyoming Truck Laws
In Wyoming, truck traffic on highways such as Interstate 80 and Interstate 90 and around cities such as Cheyenne, Casper and Laramie remains a daily hazard for commuters. Nearly 1,000 fatal and non-fatal accidents involving commercial vehicles occur on Wyoming’s roadways every year, leaving hundreds of residents injured or dead. If you or a family member is suffering following an accident with a tractor-trailer, charter bus or other commercial vehicle, make certain you are represented by attorneys who fully understand the often-complicated process of truck accident litigation. Add Michael to your team of local attorneys and partner with a lawyer who vows to fight to help you receive the maximum settlement amount from a negligent truck driver or trucking company.
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 Cheyenne may own a truck that only makes in-state deliveries.
The Wyoming 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.
