Truck driver fatigue can lead to fatal motor vehicle accidents
Fatigue can get the best of all of us. Working while exhausted can not only diminish your work productivity, but it may be hazardous to your health. However, this peril is increasingly high for truck drivers. There are laws in the U.S. that limit the number of hours a truck driver is allowed to be on the road. These regulations have been set into place in order to prevent truck driver fatigue. Numerous studies have demonstrated that driving without adequate rest and sleep, may cause the same level of impairment as driving under the influence (DUI). Needless to say, truck driver fatigue can ultimately lead to a catastrophic car accident or auto collision.
