Weight requirements: Each and every auto transporter should make sure that the weight of the vehicle complies with the weight requirements of the federal and states DOT. Most of the roads have axle weight requirements and restrictions which all the companies that ships vehicle must abide.
Authorization of hauling vehicles: The transportation department wants the shipping companies to make use of the trucks that have been designed specifically for hauling vehicles.
Mandatory inspection: All the shipping drivers should stop on all highway routes at the weigh stations for mandatory weight inspection.
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 become stricter 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.
