Why “HazMat Transportation Security Plans” Matters:
As a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver, you have a lot of responsibility. The biggest concern is safety.
The federal hours-of-service (HOS) rules were developed to reduce the likelihood of driver fatigue, fatigue-related crashes, and health effects of driving long hours.
Although crash rates have been falling, thousands of people are still injured and killed in truck crashes each year, including hundreds of truck drivers.
HOS rules put limits on when and how long you may drive, with the goal that these limits will help ensure that you stay awake and alert while driving and also help protect your health and safety.
