Carr Allison News                   5             The Alabama Department of Public Safety (ADPS) defines intrastate
                                          commerce as: “Any trade, traffic, or transportation beginning and ending
                                          within the boundaries of this state [Alabama].” When speaking to the issue of
                                          why they chose to require DOT registration for small intrastate carriers, the
                                          ADPS had the following to say:

                                                 The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) were
                                                 adopted by Alabama in 1987 (§ 32-9A-2). Those regulations have long

                                          1.      By determining the safety fitness of the motor carrier prior to issuing
                                          license plates; and

                                          2.     By motivating the carrier to improve its safety performance either
                                          through an improvement process or the application of registration sanctions.
      An Update on Alabama Trucking Law (cont’d.)
        Via PRISM, the State commercial vehicle registration program ensures that no vehicle is plated with-
out identifying the responsible carrier for vehicle safety during the registration year. In addition, the use of
registration sanctions provides incentive for unsafe carriers to improve their safety performance. Those motor
carriers that have been or would be prohibited from operating in interstate commerce by the Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Administration may be denied registration by the State.

         The fact that smaller commercial vehicles will now be required to have a DOT number does not mean
that their drivers will necessarily need to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). The rule for CDL re-
quirements remains the same – you do not have to have a CDL to operate a commercial vehicle if the GVWR
is less than 26,001 lbs. However, driver’s of the following types of vehicles fall under exceptions to the gen-
eral rule and are required to maintain a valid CDL:

          1.    A vehicle designed to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver; or
          2.    Any sized vehicle that is used in the transportation of hazardous materials as defined by the
                FMCSRs.

Aside from being forced to comply with the FMCSRs, the compliance impact on newly covered businesses
should be minimal. There is no charge for obtaining the intrastate US DOT number. Separate vehicles
owned and operated by the same entity will not require separate numbers. A single number will be issued for
the company. All vehicles with a combined GVWR of 10,0001 lbs. or more within that company will use that
number. The DOT number and legal name (as registered on the MCS-150 application) must be displayed on
such vehicles by magnetic signs, paint or stickers. The FMCSRs direct that the number is to, “appear on
both sides of the self-propelled CMV; [and] be in letters that contrast sharply in color with the background on
which the letters are placed.”

      Additional information regarding compliance with this requirement can be found at the Alabama

Recent Decisions
Under what circumstances can a company be responsible for the activities of the transportation company it
hires to ship its products?
        Stewart v. Lofton Timber Co., LLC & Georgia Pacific Corp., 943 So. 2d 729 (Miss. Nov. 7, 2006).

         Facts: The Stewarts were injured in a collision with a log truck owned by Nickerson, the driver. He parked his
truck at Lofton Timber Company, LLC, where Georgia Pacific Corporation kept wood for hauling by drivers, such as
Nickerson. Plaintiff sued Lofton and Georgia Pacific. Lofton denied that Nickerson was its employee.

         Nickerson owned his own trucks. Lofton offered a set rate of pay for hauling wood, which Nickerson was at lib-
erty to accept or refuse. While the equipment for loading the wood was owned by Lofton, the trucks to haul the wood
were Nickerson’s. Nickerson hired his own drivers, ran background checks on them, prepared the routes that they
would take, and determined how many hauls per day the drivers would make. Nickerson hired and fired his own em-
ployees. Nickerson paid his own employees. Lofton Timber Company only insured that the trucks were within the legal
weight limit when they left the facility. Lofton in addition would advise Nickerson as to which truck should go to what
Georgia Pacific plant. Lofton would pay Nickerson as a contractor, not an employee.

         Analysis: The Mississippi Court of Appeals held that under the facts, Lofton simply had no control over how
Nickerson did the work he was assigned. Nickerson had the right to and did determine the details of the work, under the
ten part test of control cited. Further, since Lofton was not an employer of Nickerson, no analysis was needed to see if
Georgia Pacific was an employer of Lofton, who then employed Nickerson. Thus, summary judgment was appropriate for
both Lofton and Georgia Pacific.

Is a trucking employer liable for workers’ compensation benefits due to the breakdown of a truck, where the em-
ployee becomes intoxicated during the wait?

        Total Transportation of Mississippi, Inc. v. Shores, 2006 Miss. App. LEXIS 874 (Miss. Ct. App. Nov. 21, 2006).

        Facts: A husband and wife truck driving team stopped in Laramie, Wyoming, for truck repairs. The wife han-
dled getting the truck to a truck repair shop, leaving her husband at a Sinclair truck center, which had a bar. The wife
could not find the husband upon her return a few hours later, although she did not check the bar itself. After waiting sev-
eral more hours and looking for him, she began to drive the truck herself back to Jackson, Mississippi.

         Meanwhile, the husband went to Foster’s Bar in the Sinclair Truck Center. He was there for a period of eleven
hours. During that period, while he had a meal, he consumed enough alcohol to make him legally drunk. He also played
pool during that period of time. At 2:00 AM, when the bar closed, the husband requested a man to take him to the Petro
Center where the husband thought the truck was being repaired. In the parking lot, the man pulled a gun on the hus-
band demanding money. The husband got in the car with the man, but jumped out as the car approached the Petro
station. The man then shot and killed the husband.

         The widow filed for workers’ compensation benefits as to the death of her husband, and the Mississippi Workers’
Compensation Commission granted them. The Mississippi Court of Appeals reversed, holding that the husband’s level
of intoxication was so great that he could not have legally re-entered employment as a truck driver for some period of
time after his death. The Court found that his eleven hour drinking binge, during which he spent his paycheck on alco-
hol, deviated materially from his employment.

         The Court also found that the husband’s death was not related to his employment as a truck driver. The Court
determined that the husband’s status as a truck driver was not the reason the other person robbed and shot him. In-
stead, that decision more likely had to do with the victim husband’s state of intoxication and the fact that he had signifi-
cant sums of money on him. Furthermore, the husband was not located on the general truck stop grounds which much
of the events occurred, but rather in the bar located on the grounds. The positional risk doctrine, which applies to em-
ployees who have to work in dangerous areas, would not apply to a bar on a truck stop grounds under these circum-
stances.

         Joe Driver and Brett Ross recently obtained a decision from the Alabama Supreme Court which
changed Alabama law regarding an insurer’s right to void a policy based upon misrepresentations in an insur-
ance application. Under the prior law, material misrepresentations by an insured could only be used to defeat
coverage if the loss occurred during the initial policy period. For any loss which arose during a renewal policy
period, the insurer could not defend coverage based upon material misrepresentations in the application,
even if those misrepresentations were directly related to the risk insured. In Quality Casualty Insurance Co.
v. Ruben, the Supreme Court overruled the prior law and held that material misrepresentations in an applica-
tion for insurance can be a defense to coverage even if the loss occurred under a renewal policy.

cerning Medicare Set-asides.
