Virginia Semi-Truck Accident Attorneys
Per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, commercial trucker are not allowed to drive more than 10 hours or work more than 15 hours at a time without an 8 hour rest period. However, these rules are so widely disregarded that truckers refer to the logbooks that they track their hours in as "comic books". However, it is no laughing matter that commercial trucks are involved in higher overall crash rates than passenger vehicles. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration records an average of 97 fatalities every year from crashes involving a large truck.
