New federal regulations are hitting the productivity of the trucking industry.
“The new hours of service regulations make it necessary for a driver, after he’s driven his 10 or 11 hours, he must stop that truck, no matter where he is. Now it doesn’t make any sense at all, does it? But he’s supposed to stop that truck, and get his 10 hour break.Of course truck drivers should have required breaks, but only a government regulator would require that it be ten hours.
“I might throw in here a comment that they don’t even make people in jail stay in bed 10 hours.”
