Motor Carrier Safety
National Summary

This topic covers the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs), which apply to all employers, employees, and commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) that transport property or passengers in interstate commerce. The FMCSRs do not apply to certain cases, including public-sector activities, school bus operations, fire and rescue vehicles used in emergency response, and noncommercial transportation of personal property.

The FMCSRs include requirements for motor carrier identification, marking of CMVs, recordkeeping, financial responsibility, accident reporting, and employee safety and health standards. All motor carriers must make all records and information about accidents available to an authorized FMSCA representative.

For related resources and training materials, refer to the following topics:

  • Driving Safely for information about general safe driving practices, distracted driving, and other driving-related information not specifically addressing commercial motor carriers
  • Hours of Service (Motor Carriers) for information on the DOT’s hours-of-service regulations for motor carriers
  • Commercial Driver Safety for information about DOT safe driving regulations for commercial drivers
  • Material Handling for information about rim wheel servicing requirements
