Fatigue A Factor in 30 to 40 Percent Of All Truck Accidents

Screen Shot 2012-12-10 at 2.54.44 PM“A driver who gets behind the wheel without proper rest creates a danger under any circumstances. When that driver is behind the wheel of a tractor trailer the potential for serious injury to the traveling public increases exponentially. Studies find that “fatigue” is factor in 30 to 40 percent of all truck accidents, and thus a leading cause of serious injury on the roadway.”

This is an excerpt from Marion Munley’s recent article, “Fatigued Truck Drivers” that was published our online TruckAccident Magazine. This online publication is FULL of helpful information for victims of truck accidents and their families, like being able to identify the possibility of a fatigued driver being involved in your accident.

The magazine will provide these victims with information that is helpful to them in their time of tragedy. If you know of someone who would benefit from this information, please pass it on to them!
