Truck driver fatigue can cause tragedies on the road

From 18-wheelers to tractor-trailers, trucks of all kinds traveling along our East Coast highways are at a risk to be involved in a fatal accident. These trucks are often much larger in size than passenger vehicles. They also tend to carry large quantities of goods, making them much heavier than the average passenger vehicle. These differences in size and weight can turn otherwise minor road accidents into serious, life-threatening accidents. Many accidents occur because a truck driver fails to safely operate his vehicle. The U.S. Department of Transportation has implemented regulations to ensure that truck drivers and trucking companies don't put other motorists at risk for injury.
