Fatigued trucking can lead to serious crashes

Truckers do a major service to this country, but they must ensure that they're being safe while they're doing it. One thing that they need to be careful about is driving when they become fatigued. In most cases, truckers are subjected to the Hours of Service regulations, which limit them to being able to drive no more than 11 hours total before taking at least 10 hours off to rest. There are times when these regulations are relaxed, so truckers might choose to drive more.

Construction site fatalities commonly caused by these 4 issues

Construction workers have to be very careful as they do their job duties. It is imperative that they understand some of the bigger risks that they face, so they can try to avoid them. Their employers should do the same, so they can develop safety protocol for each site.

Bill may open up interstate travel to truckers under 21

Truck drivers in Texas probably know how the state only allows them to travel interstate if they are 21 or older. A bipartisan bill introduced in February 2019 and called the DRIVE-Safe Act may alter this. It proposes to let truckers aged 18 to 20 travel interstate after a probationary period where they complete 400 driving hours. At least 240 of those hours are to be accompanied with another CDL holder who is 21 or older.
