My SinL(truck driver,artics)has just handed his notice in with a company that expected him to present himself for work at 5am and not leave for home until 7/8/or even 9pm six days a week!
All of that time wasn't spent driving obviously,he would spend time being unloaded and waiting for loads,etc but how anyone can be fit to drive such machinery with those kind hours per day I really don't know.
His new job guarantees he'll only work a 12hour day
So yes I agree it is time to tighten the rules.
