Since the 1970s, deregulation has increased the number of rules under which trucking operates. Instead of regulating freight, the Federal Motor Carriers Service Association (FMCSA) regulates individual truckers, micromanaging their working hours, their sleep, their speed, and their health. These regulations proceed under the guise of public safety but are actually motivated by corporate profit.

Keywords:   Hours of Service Regulations (HOS), electronic logging, Federal Motor Carriers Service Association (FMCSA), Micromanagement, blue-collar workers, neoliberalism
