However, another distracted driving behavior leading to teen car accidents is passenger interaction.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates and monitors trucking companies throughout the United States, setting forth regulations governing commercial motor vehicles and trucking companies.
Within the FMCSA Regulations are a set of rules referred to as Hours of Service (HOS). These regulations govern commercial truck drivers and the hours they work and drive.

Unfortunately, driving gets more dangerous as the light fades. While we only do one quarter of our driving at night, 50% of traffic deaths happen at night. In fact, more than 40,000 people were killed in car crashes in 2016 (according to Injury Facts).
Making a U-turn is one of the most dangerous maneuvers any driver on our roadways can make. When done by a large commercial truck, the results can be devastating and often deadly.
