Tired Truck Driver Accidents

Truck accidents can be extremely dangerous due to the size and impact of trucks. However, truck accidents become exponentially more dangerous when the truck driver falls asleep at the wheel.

The Dangers of a Tired Truck Driver

With strict deadlines and long hauls, truck drivers are often pushed to their physical limits. As a result, fatigued drivers are common on major highways throughout the country. If a truck driver falls asleep at the wheel, every driver around him or her is in grave and immediate danger. The truck driver might swerve into oncoming traffic or even cause a head-on collision.

As a result of these dangers, the federal government has intervened by establishing strict regulations for truck drivers. These regulations are known as hours of service (HOS) regulations which delineate how many consecutive hours a driver can be on the road before taking a rest break. Unfortunately, these regulations are often ignored by truck drivers, and the roads remain unsafe for innocent drivers.
