The main cause for most automobile accidents is driver distraction. Looking at cell phones, changing the radio stations, and suffering from fatigue are only a few of the many ways that a driver can become distracted while driving.
A driver can suffer from fatigue for a number of reasons. But, the most common form of driver fatigue is simply caused by driving for too many hours and not getting enough sleep.
Truck drivers are especially at risk of fatigue because of their varied work schedule. There are laws in place that limit how many consecutive hours that they are allowed to drive.
Each year, there are over four thousand accidents involving trucks and buses, and nearly twenty percent of these are caused by fatigued drivers. Left in the aftermath are the innocent bystanders in the other vehicles involved who are potentially suffering emotionally, physically, or financially.
Truck drivers are classified into two categories and each has its own limitations.
