Thanksgiving Safety Tips For Those On The Roads

When you are speeding and not paying attention on a busy city thoroughfare, bad things can happen. Yesterday in Charlotte, a reckless driver caused a serious 5 car pile-up. When the driver of a Mercedes Benz sped down W.T. Harris Boulevard, which is a four lane highway, it ran another car off the road and then into another vehicle.

Sleep Disorder Blamed in Many Fatal Truck Accidents

Odds are that if you are driving on an interstate highway, more than 25% of the tractor-trailers you see will be operated by a fatigued truck driver. This is because approximately 3 million U.S. truck drivers have what is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is characterized by sleep-disordered breathing that results in daytime sleepiness, sleep attacks, micro-sleeps, psychomotor deficits, and disrupted nighttime sleep. OSA dramatically increases a truck driver's risk of being involved in a fatal truck accident. Unfortunately, many truck companies continue to deny that many of their drivers suffer from OSA and refuse to conduct company sponsored screening for the disorder. The problem of fatigued truck drivers has been a deadly problem for years.
