Truck companies have a vested interest in their drivers covering as much distance as possible when making their deliveries. Not long ago on this blog we posted about a trucking company that allegedly strong-armed their drivers into falsifying information in their logbooks. The story was written in the aftermath of a spate of fatal truck accidents in the Chicago area.
Many stories you hear or read about truck accidents may make reference to the legal importance of truck drivers providing detailed information about their on-the-road activities through the use of these books. But have you ever wondered what specifically the truckers are required to record?
