Nebraska Truck Laws
From the heavy interstate traffic of I-80, to a state highway system that includes busy routes such as N-2 and N-17, Nebraska’s roadways carry steady truck traffic that carry produce to both urban and agricultural destinations. Urban centers such as Lincoln, Omaha and Bellevue attract tractor-trailers and semi-trucks in large numbers, leading to countless avoidable injuries and deaths. More than 1,000 truck accidents throughout Nebraska leave motorists injured or killed every year. If you or a family member is suffering following an accident involving a negligent truck driver or carrier, ensure that your rights are protected by contacting an attorney with years of courtroom experience.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (Title 49, Parts 350-399) govern all vehicles engaged in interstate traffic.
There are some situations where a tractor-trailer or other commercial motor vehicle is involved in only intrastate travel. For example, an appliance store in Falls City may own a truck that only makes in-state deliveries.
The Nebraska Department of Public Safety has adopted Title 49, Parts 382, 383, 384, 390, 391, 392, 393, 394, 395, 396, 397, 398, and 399 of the federal regulations.
