North Miami Truck Driver Fatigue

Commercial truck drivers are especially trained because of the dangers of their job and are required by law to obey the federal rules of their jobs. One of these rules concerns hours of service rules. These federal regulations require commercial truck drivers to get adequate sleep and to keep track of hours rested as well as hours worked. The aim of these laws is to help prevent the many truck accidents that occur each year due to fatigued drivers.

While the dangers of fatigued driving are well known in the industry, some drivers till violate hours of service rules and each year this recklessness causes serious truck accidents in North Miami and other communities.
