Houston Commercial Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer

Motor carriers account for 64% of the total weight of freight moved as illustrated in our 2017 Pocket Guide to Large Truck and Bus Statistics. Throughout the years, that percentage has steadily increased and we expect it to continue.

Today, commercial vehicles play a critical role in the Nation’s economy.  Large trucks move billions of tons of goods each year.  Motorcoaches transport passengers across the nation, and school buses carry America’s children safely to and from school each day.  Millions of Americans work with commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in various aspects of the transportation industry, and as of December, 2015, approximately 6 million people drove large trucks and buses, or were involved in the transportation of hazardous materials.

The daily uninterrupted flow of goods, services and passengers throughout the country is made possible by the efficient and safe delivery of those goods, services and passengers.  The safety rules, which govern the industry, help protect the people who work in the industry as well as the general traveling public.

To improve CMV safety, in 1986, Congress enacted the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act (CMVSA).  It was intended to improve highway safety by removing unsafe CMVs and unqualified and unsafe drivers from the roads.  The CMVSA standardized the minimum requirements for obtaining and retaining a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and prohibited drivers from holding more than one CDL.  In 1999, Congress passed the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act and created the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).  The FMCSA is a separate administration within the U.S. Department of Transportation, with a mission to “reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.”
