The commercial trucking industry will roll out new regulations for truck drivers in Florida and around the country this month. Effective July 1st, 2013, truckers will have to comply with new rules for sleep and start-times, in a concentrated effort to ensure that drivers are well-rested for the road. Personal injury attorneys in Fort Myers hope that the new laws will cut down on accidents involving commercial vehicles.
