Over the road truck drivers are often paid by the miles. This creates a serious incentive for truck drivers to cover as many miles as they can each day. When truck drivers push themselves too far and fail to get the sleep that they need, their ability to remain alert is diminished.
Truck Drivers need to be awake and alert at all times. 18 wheelers have the potential to create extensive damage and serious injuries when not handled with caution.
The issue of truck driver alertness is so critical to maintaining the safety of our highways that there are federal regulations governing exactly how much rest truck drivers must have and how many hours they may operate a tractor trailer in a day.
Unfortunately, this does not prevent truck drivers from falsifying their log books in order to get a bigger paycheck. In some instances, drivers may be under pressure from their employers to meet deadlines that are unrealistic.
