This was an amazing book that really opened my eyes to the safety regulations of automobiles. I am currently a highway patrol officer in Spurbury, Vermont. In order to be the best cop possible, I need to know safety regulations and this book really helped me with that.

This book is just what the title says -- it is the regulations published by the FMCSA for the trucking industry. Obituaries are more interesting to read. HOWEVER, if you are in the trucking industry there is something in there that pertains to you, whether you are a driver, a truck mechanic, builder, broker, etc, etc. And yes, it should be required reading for anybody in the industry, at least those portions that affect you. My gripe with this book, is the that it is totally written in government legal speak. Sometimes you have to spend too much time trying to understand what it is that they are trying to say. This book could be made some much better if they not only gave you the "rule", but then interpreted it into layman's terminology. There is a small section that attempts to do this with Q/A. But not enough detail. Tell us how to put the rule into action. Index the different sections that an individual needs to know. For example, does a driver need to know the intricate details of how to conduct a drug/alcohol test? No. He does need to know when he may be required to submit to one and the penalties for not doing so, or not doing so in a timely manner, including the fact that violating the rule could mean the loss your job and become unemployable in the industry. Conversely, does the person conducting a drug/alcohol screening need to know what is required in Pre-Trip Inspection? Again, NO. And to the cops in Spurbury, VT. I hope that you have had more training in these regs than just reading the book, and if not I will steer clear of your town because if you try to enforce these regulations and dont know what you doing, you are just going to make a bad day for a driver.

I have to agree with Mr. Liter of Cola. I am a new member of the Spurbury Highway Patrol and this is by far the most helpful book of them all. My favorite book used to be "Swinging with Criminals" but now it is this. Thank you J.J. Keller!

This is a valuable read if you are a CDL driver or if you are an HR person dealing with CDL drivers. Gives you all the lowdown on new rules and regs. in a pocket size book.

D. Lavine gave an excellent review of this " book." It is truly not any kind of enjoyable read. It is a book of government regulations written by and for government people. It is not written in any way, shape or form for the average person to look something up if they have a question. However, it is THE only source for this type of information.

An alternative is the North American Standard Out of Service Criteria. While it is not the complete regulations, it only covers the violations that will SHUT YOU DOWN along the road. It is written in regular English with pictures and diagrams. It comes out every April 1st and there are always changes from one year to the next. Whether it is brakes, tires,frame, suspension or hours of service...if you want to know what officers are using to see if you have an OOS violation, this is THE manual.

They can be obtained from CVSA.org and other sources. Don't use the previous years edition unless you get it for free or CHEAP.
