Regulations for the trucking industry are changed on the federal level when laws are introduced in Congress.  When an issue comes up in the Congress, Senators and Members of the House of Representatives appreciate hearing from their constituents.  If there is an issue that you feel strongly about, send your concerns to your state representative or contact your senator.

Truck drivers are an essential part of the American way of life, delivering our food and other goods from coast to coast. Most of these drivers are careful and courteous to other vehicles on the road. Too frequently, though, they are forced to meet unrealistic deadlines to get to their destinations as quickly as possible. Some #truck  drivers also have reported that the conditions of their trucks are below standards, but they have to keep moving. Job security, insurance benefits, and the right to disagree with their supervisor vary from state to state. In some states, if a truck driver complains about their working conditions, they can be dismissed.

In order to make our highways safer, everyone must do their part. By joining together, truck drivers, consumers, and safety organizations can make a difference.
