What is considered a commercial vehicle?


Commercial vehicles in Louisiana cover a wide range of vehicles and are used for work purposes and to transport goods or passengers. Vehicles owned or leased by a business, or a private vehicle used for work purposes, are considered commercial. Because of the high volume of industrial activity in LaPlace commercial vehicle accidents are common in St. John the Baptist Parish. Examples of commercial vehicles include:

  • Dump trucks, tour buses, public transportation buses, and private business buses.
  • Tractor-trailers hauling heavy equipment or materials, such as vehicles, heavy machinery, construction materials, and more.
  • Delivery vans, moving trucks, extended cab trucks, and box trucks.
  • Tanker trucks hauling potentially hazardous materials.
