Consumers have very few friends in congress who come close to Bruce Braley , Congressman from Iowa. Let's get out of the way the usual attack on him. Yes, he was a trial lawyer. But, as this clip points out, he also knows a lot about truck driving:

In this case, he is asking Congress to take a good hard look at how many hours truck drivers can drive. As he explains:

The simple truth is that the old rule is a serious safety concern for American drivers. As it stands, trucking companies have the ability to force their drivers to drive up to 11 hours in a 21 hour period. Additionally, the rule allows drivers to drive up to 88 hours in 8 days — that's more than two full work weeks in just over a week! Under the existing rules, truck companies can force their truck drivers to drive extremely long hours without time off to sleep.

Thank you Congressman Braley for making sure safety is a regular issue that Congress is looking at.
