On highways throughout the state of Florida, including I-95, I-75 and the Florida Turnpike, thousands of semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles travel each day with no problems.

Federal and State Trucking Rules and Regulations
It is important for trucking companies, their drivers and others on the road to recognize the dangers that semi-truck drivers can inflict when carelessly traveling on roadways. Certain federal and state requirements must be met in order to operate commercial motor vehicles, including:
- Performing required maintenance and inspections, including the tractor and trailer
- Sufficiently training drivers who have commercial driver's licenses
- Keeping accurate log books and driver qualification files
- Reporting traffic convictions
- Having drivers obey regulations about driving hours and on-duty time
- Not operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol
