The most important thing when going behind the wheel of any motor vehicle is being safe and staying alert. But what are the major outcomes you could get from an accident of a commercial motor vehicle?

Here are a few critical things that could occur:
- Insurance & Truck Repairs
- Possible Explosion – if a colliding compact car were to catch on fire –
- Possible Death or Critical Injuries to Yourself or Others
The biggest factor that created the December Mandate of 2017 was to require rest breaks to truckers in the hopes of resulting in less accidents due from falling asleep at the wheel which will potentially avoid more accidents and less likely for these critical outcomes to occur.

In 2011, FMCSA – Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration – passed a rule for truck drivers on limitations and guidelines they need to follow in order to avoid violations – also known as – “Hours of Service.”
Per FMCSA, these are the stated guidelines:
- All drivers have an 11-Hour Driving Limit:
May drive a maximum of 11 hours after 10 consecutive hours off duty.
- Per 14-Hour Limit:
Drivers may not drive beyond the 14th consecutive hour after coming on duty, following 10 consecutive hours off duty. (Off-duty time does not extend the 14-hour period.)
- Rest Breaks:
May drive only if 8 hours or less have passed since end of driver’s last off (duty or sleeper berth period of at least 30 minutes.)
- Sleeper Berth:
Drivers using the sleeper berth provision must take at least 8 consecutive hours in the sleeper berth, plus a separate 2 consecutive hours either in the sleeper berth, off duty, or any combination of the two.
