Fatigue has long been known to contribute to truck accidents. Studies have found that driving when you are tired is very similar to driving while intoxicated, and can result in delayed reaction times, short blackouts, and other serious dangers.
To combat trucker fatigue, state and federal regulations limit the number of hours a trucker may spend on the road in between rest periods. However, to remain employed, many truck drivers are forced to ignore these rules and drive long after they are able to safely focus on the task of driving.
