Industry attorneys launch first app-based, digital version of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations

Transportation attorneys Brandon Wiseman and Jerad Childress, who have nearly 20 years of combined experience working with some of the nation’s largest motor carriers on USDOT legal and compliance issues, recently launched eRegs, a digital way for motor carriers to access, annotate, distribute, and better navigate the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. 

Building off their industry-leading educational content and courses offered through their consulting company, Trucksafe, Wiseman, and Childress want to change how trucking companies and their drivers interact with and internalize the FMCSRs. 

“For too long, carriers and drivers have purchased and relied on physical copies of the regulations, which do little to help them and their drivers actually understand the complexities of the regulatory text,” said co-founder Brandon Wiseman. “With eRegs, carriers have an always up-to-date version of the regulations at their fingertips on any of their devices, which they can annotate with highlights, bookmarks, and notes. More importantly, they have access to all of the educational content we’ve developed through Trucksafe to help them better understand regulatory nuances right from the eRegs web or mobile app.”

ERegs offers fleets a fully digital alternative to the process of distributing physical regulation books to drivers. “Many carriers are paying thousands of dollars each year to source and distribute physical regulatory pocketbooks to their drivers,” said co-founder Jerad Childress. “It’s no secret those books are quickly outdated and often end up in the trash. With eRegs, fleets can easily add drivers to their accounts for a nominal one-time fee. From there, drivers can access the up-to-date regulatory text from their mobile devices, and carriers receive digital receipts to prove they’ve distributed the regulations across their fleet. Depending on their fleet size, carriers stand to save thousands of dollars each year by transitioning away from physical books and to eRegs.”  

ERegs integrates directly with the electronic Code of Federal Regulations, ensuring fleets have access to the latest version of the regulatory text. User annotations and Trucksafe educational content are synced across devices and accessible via the web and the eRegs mobile app, now available in the App Store and Google Play Store. Fleets can try eRegs for free for 14 days and subscribe online at
