Drivers are paid by the amount of miles they drive and the total load they can carry on their truck. Because a driver’s pay depends on the number of miles he or she drives and the amount of the truck load, drivers are often pushed to drive further and longer than they should. Fatigued drivers can cause a broad range of accidents, including fatal ones.

When a driver of a vehicle is fatigued, the driver’s instincts and inhibitions are lowered. Truckers have the largest vehicles on the road. These vehicles automatically require additional time for things such as braking, changing lanes and passing vehicles. If a driver is fatigued, he or she is unable to sense as quickly the time needed to stop or to recognize the possibility of an accident.
