Truck Driver Fatigue In Accidents
Over-the-road truckers make their living based on their ability to meet extremely tight deadlines. Whether it is the trucking company putting pressure on a driver to make a run when he or she should be out of service or the driver who wants the extra money, demanding clients who are willing to pay often serve as a catalyst for poor decision-making that can sometimes have deadly consequences.
The federal government has implemented specific rules for commercial truck drivers, including requirements for the amount of sleep they should have. When drivers do not receive the proper amount of sleep, they place themselves and every motorist on the road with them at serious risk of injury.
