FMCSA and DOT at odds over trucker drive time limits

Most people in New Jersey have seen, read or heard reports about tragic accidents that have happened in which tractor-trailers have collided with regular-sized passenger vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians or bicyclists. It is not hard to understand how people in other vehicles, on bikes or on foot face serious disadvantages when these events happen. This is one of the reasons that the government has developed a series of rules designed to improve trucker and public safety.

3-vehicle motorcycle accident kills New Jersey man

In addition to cars and trucks, motorcycles can also collide with other motorcycles. Sometimes a motorcyclist may collide with both another bike and a car or truck at the same time. That is what happened at the end of June in Holmdel, New Jersey, on the Garden State Parkway, and a 38-year-old motorcyclist lost his life as a result. 

N.J. legislature votes to require IIDs for all DWIs

The current New Jersey law, enacted in 2010, requires the installation of ignition interlock devices for first-time DWIs with a blood alcohol concentration that meets or exceeds 0.15%, as well as all alleged repeat offenders. Ignition interlock devices reportedly prevented approximately 13,500 drivers from operating a vehicle while intoxicated last year alone. However, advocacy groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving believe that the current law does not go far enough and have pushed lawmakers to make ignition interlock devices a requirement for all DWI offenses.
