Schedules Conform to Speed Limits (49 C.F.R. § 392.6)

Legal Commentary: It stands to reason that the trucks we see on the road that have great distances to travel, or even local commercial motor vehicle carriers, cannot legally travel faster than the speed limit. One way to determine whether this has happened is to determine whether a vehicle traveling between two points has done so more quickly than would be possible if that vehicle were in compliance with the speed limits.

Of course, it is possible that a driver might speed and then pull off the road, but there could well be witnesses to this activity and in a truck accident case, an experienced semi truck accident lawyer will work to determine whether the driver was speeding at the time of an accident or injury. The Law Offices of P. Charles Scholle have the experience to investigate all facts and present the best case possible to help victims recover.

§ 392.6 Schedules to Conform With Speed Limits

No motor carrier shall schedule a run nor permit nor require the operation of any commercial motor vehicle between points in such period of time as would necessitate the commercial motor vehicle being operated at speeds greater than those prescribed by the jurisdictions in or through which the commercial motor vehicle is being operated.
