Truck driving is a commercial enterprise. These enterprises make money by getting from point A to point B as quickly as possible. Many of the rules that truck drivers and trucking companies are supposed to follow are rules that slow them down, such as federal regulations that prevent drivers from spending too much time behind the wheel. Unfortunately, in the quest to make more money, truck drivers and trucking companies often set the rules aside, endangering everyone else on the road. The result is often a serious accident.
