Do federal rules and regulations that apply to trucking companies and their employees cover the number of hours they are allowed to drive?

Yes. There have been restrictions on hours behind the wheel since 1939. Over the last few decades, though, there have been changes made to the law. The changes are intended to make sure drivers have mandatory breaks to ensure they are driving while rested and alert.
