Fatigued Truck Driving
Have you ever driven home late at night while feeling a little drowsy? Perhaps you even started to doze off for a split second? If so, you understand just how dangerous fatigued driving is, and it’s infinitely more dangerous when the tired driver is behind the wheel of a semi.
While you might expect professional drivers to act more safely, fatigued truck driving happens far more often than you would think. Truck drivers must follow tight schedules with little extra time built in for the smallest traffic delays. Often, this leads to them cutting into their rest time as they race to finish the current day’s stops without getting a late start on the next day.
