Important Laws and Regulations in Washington

There are many important laws and regulations for truck drivers to know about in Washington.

Washington state takes their laws very seriously. A commercial driver’s license can be revoked for many reasons including leaving a gas station without paying for fuel, refusing to be tested for drugs or alcohol, or leaving the scene of an accident that you were involved in.

You will also need to equip your truck with snow tires or chains in the wintertime when weather requires it. Particularly along some of the routes in the mountains, you will need snow tires in order to be permitted on those roads. There are usually pull-off areas that will allow you to put chains on your tires before entering those roads in the winter.
