Drugs and Driver Fatigue

Pennsylvania Truck Accidents Involving Drugs & Driver Fatigue | New Jersey and Pennsylvania

Under state and federal regulations, commercial truck drivers have clear limits on the amount of time they can spend on the road, in order to minimize the risk that their judgment and reaction time will be affected by fatigue. Unfortunately, many drivers ignore the regulations, and some use over-the-counter and prescription drugs to stay awake for long hours on the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), fatigue and drug abuse are both significant contributors to often deadly truck accidents. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a truck accident, we can help.
