Hours-of-service rules aim to keep tired drivers off the road


Commercial vehicle drivers often must meet extreme scheduling demands set by their employers or those who contract for their services. Unfortunately, this often means that truck and bus drivers do not get the sleep or rest that they need to be alert and attentive to road and traffic conditions. All too often, drivers are unable to respond quickly to emergency events, even if they do not actually fall asleep while driving. This problem has vexed federal and state regulators for years.

Tracy Morgan's truck accident sparks debate on trucking laws


Unlike a car, driving a truck requires a special degree of care and training, mostly due to the size of the vehicle. Residents of Roanoke, Virginia, are perhaps aware of the specific rules that truckers are required to follow, apart from the usual rules of the road. These rules have been implemented to ensure that anyone driving a truck does so in the safest manner possible, thus, minimizing any chance of a truck accident.
