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. Unfortunately, this is a common
occurrence on the road today, so much so that the federal government has
intervened with regulations for truck drivers in hopes to eliminate these
types of accidents.

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
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.
