Too many bridge strikes and you get new regulations. According to Bloomberg, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will:

…will require GPS training for new operators seeking commercial-driver certification (and) begin distributing GPS training recommendations, including how to select professional-grade navigation systems, instructions on how to input truck sizes and axle weights, and tips on avoiding distracted driving.

In fact, the FMCSA earlier today posted tips on selecting a GPS for trucks and buses.
