Truck drivers are required to follow certain regulations regarding the hours of operation of their trucks. Due to the high demand for goods to be transported throughout the United States, these truck drivers are often working long, consecutive hours, and can easily suffer from driver fatigue.
Federal regulations demand that all truck drivers maintain a log recording their activities, a record of cargo and a record of proper truck maintenance. Logs are inspected to ensure that drivers are taking proper rest periods to avoid tired driving and to make sure that the truck is being kept in safe working order.
