Many regulations when its come to drivers,but silence when trucking companies steal truck drivers.DOT is breaking all the laws by leaving roads in very poor condition.roads and bridges are not safety,how could they ask drivers for being or not being safety?!

Everything is going fk up because of so many stupid regulations.creating stress,wasting time,pushing drivers to live their entire on the road,pushing drivers to drive when they don't feel to drive because of stupid electronic logs,pushing drivers to drive in bad weather,and beside those if the loads are not delivered in time truck drivers get fired.

Stupid physical. They check your piss. They check your vision. Have you cover one ear and then the other to see if you can hear them whisper numbers. Test your reflexes and hand/eye coordination. All around is kind of dumb.

70 hour rule has no effect on safety. I think all ite drivers would agree that they would much rather take their days off at home. Also 14 hour rule I think is fine except one problem if we want to take a 2 hour map in the sleeper it still counts against your 14. How is this safe? They are absolutely making drivers drive when they are tired. Sam with 30 min break rule. 30 min break rule does nothing except make drivers work 30 min later and this equal 30 min less sleep. Most of these rules are to address fatigue. In all facts the rules cause fatigue. Are roads will become more unsafe with else mandate. Why you ask ? Simple paper log drivers slept when tired a drove when rested. They made the paper say what they want.
