Feds reduce paperwork for U.S. trucking industry

In a move that could make each work day easier and safer for New Jersey truck drivers, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced that a time-consuming daily paperwork requirement for the trucking industry has been dropped. Effective Dec. 18, truck drivers are no longer required to file pre- and post-trip vehicle inspection reports in cases when no violations or safety issues are discovered during the inspection.

In fact, these tractor-trailers make up 4 percent of all vehicles that are legally registered on America's highways. Some unlucky New Jersey drivers may learn the hard way, though, that these trucks actually cause 8 percent of all fatal highway accidents. Hours of service rules are meant to minimize the potentiality for such accidents.
