With summer upon us, Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI), wanted to provide truck drivers with a friendly reminder on how to drive safely through work zones.
Welcome to Driven by Dot Transportation, Inc. We created the Driven blog to bring you the latest news and information from Dot Transportation, Inc. and the trucking industry. We are passionate about trucks and drivers, and connecting you to the rewarding careers transportation offers. We know truck drivers drive America forward and we hope to inspire and educate you along your way.

Needless to say, truck driving is a vital part of our nation’s infrastructure and economy. Whether you’ve been a truck driver for decades or are considering entering into this exciting career, here are a few reasons why trucking is still the best job in America.
This year, the Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) put a regulation in place that limits the number of hours a truck driver may drive each day, as well as a weekly limit. There are separate regulations for drivers who carry goods and those who carry passengers.
At Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI), we want to ensure our drivers are safe and follow the rules that are in place. In the hopes of eliminating any confusion, we have provided additional information on what these updated regulations mean for our drivers.
Since summer is upon us, we figured it would be a great opportunity to discuss summer driving jobs. It has become common for people, like teachers, professors, or students, to look for summer work. More and more people in those occupations are starting to look to truck driving as their summer side hustle.
