Truck Drivers and Sleep Deprivation

The Los Angeles Times had an interesting article a few weeks ago written by Karen Levy about the nation's trucking system suggesting sleep deprivation and the need to address reform of a range of unsafe practices. The article went on to state that many trucking companies are putting tremendous pressure on their drivers to stay longer on the road than what is required by law, even owner-operator are feeling the pressure when dealing with brokers, some are losing opportunities when they hew to close to the rules. If this is true, then we have an epedemic that needs to be addressed as soon as possible and what can the industry do to avoid these pressures imposed on our nations' drivers?
