Set of Laws followed in Auto Transport

There are no industries without rules and regulations and in that way let us see the set of laws followed in auto transport industry. As this industry moves vehicle all across the country, transportation law has been enforced to maintain laws of the United States. Here are those rules

Weight requirements:
Each and every auto shipper should make sure that the weight of the vehicle complies with the weight requirements of the federal and state departments of transportation. Most of the roads have axle weight requirements and restrictions in which all the shipping companies must abide.

Authorization of hauling vehicles:
The transportation departments are very strict in this law and they want the vehicle shipping companies to make use of the trucks that have been specifically designed for hauling vehicles. Only specific types of trucks have been authorized to transport the vehicles.

Mandatory inspection:
On all highway route to the desired destination and all the auto transport drivers should stop at the weigh stations for mandatory weight inspection. Inspection many not be required suggesting the weight lines are full.

Proper tying down of load:
The law suggests that the vehicles being transported should be tied down securely to the vehicle and violation of this law fetches heavy fine.

Truck driver’s hours:
This rule has been strictly following now than the past because it results in more number of accidents due to the driver’s exhaustion and lack of sleep. All the truck drivers who transport goods should maintain the log of hours they have operated the truck within 24 hrs.
