Drivers report driving too long, faking logbooks
Three B.C. truck drivers have come forward to warn that public safety is at risk on North American highways as drivers are pushed to stay behind the wheel longer than the law allows.
In written complaints to federal and provincial authorities, the drivers claim the company they worked for compelled them to drive beyond legal time limits.
"I was threatened with suspension if I didn't do it," said truck driver Ray Bouliane.
