Truck Driver Fatigue
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ( FMCSA) has specific regulations in place that govern how truck drivers do their jobs. These regulations are in place for the safety of the drivers as well as the other motorists on the road. When they choose to ignore these regulations, it puts everyone on the road at risk of potentially life-threatening personal injury in the event of an accident.

One of the most important regulations on the books for commercial truck drivers is Hours of Service (HOS) that dictates when and how long drivers may drive before they must stop for rest. Truck driver fatigue has been shown to be one of the primary causes of trucking accidents. Perhaps the worst part about these accidents is that the vast majority of them could be prevented if drivers would simply follow the regulations and get the appropriate amount of rest.
