Truck driver fatigue a concern with proposed easing of rules

Trucks will frequently go through Missouri as drivers get from one area of the nation to the other to make deliveries. These large vehicles can be a worry for those who share the road with them. Their size and speed are just part of the problem. Drivers might be under the influence, behave recklessly, be negligent or there could be an issue with the vehicle itself. All can cause a truck accident. Another problem that is common with truckers is truck driver fatigue. Rules from the Department of Transportation regulating how long drivers can drive at a single sitting are in place to prevent fatigue. However, the Trump administration is planning to ease the rules. This is sparking fear of drowsy drivers causing accident.

Car accident study places Missouri teens among worst U.S. drivers

In Missouri and across the United States, teen drivers are on the road. This is a natural and inevitable occurrence. Every driver needs to start somewhere and most begin their life on the road in their teen years. While it is an exciting time and many teens are vigilant and cautious about their new responsibilities, there are still dangers due to inexperience. When adding in other factors like negligence, recklessness, texting and driving and driving under the influence, teens are one of the riskiest demographics of drivers.
