Because so many trucking accidents are severe, the government has created guidelines that trucking companies and their drivers must follow. They include:
• Controlling the amount of sleep truckers are required to get.
• Limiting the number of hours truckers can drive daily and weekly.
• Specifying highway following distances between trucks.
