According to Quebec law, commercial drivers can only drive for 13 hours in a day, with a mandatory break of at least 30 minutes for every 5 hours of driving. This ensures that drivers are alert and focused while driving, which reduces the risk of accidents. Additionally, commercial drivers must maintain a safe distance from other vehicles, obey speed limits, and use their signals when changing lanes or turning. Failure to follow these and different rules can result in penalties such as fines or suspension of their commercial driver’s license. It is also crucial for commercial drivers to regularly inspect their vehicles and ensure that they are in good working condition to minimize the risk of accidents.
