How big a problem is truck driver fatigue?

Did you have a close call with an 18-wheeler? Were you almost forced off the road by a semi-tractor trailer that drifted into your lane? Most truckers are responsible drivers, but they work long hours and are always subject to fatigue. That drowsy feeling is insidious; it can creep up and take over in seconds, creating a hazardous situation for the trucker and any other vehicles nearby, including yours.

Hit by a truck in West Virginia?

A car driver doesn't have to be behind the wheel long in West Virginia before they come across a coal truck, a logging truck or the standard 18-wheeler. In early October, Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Joe Heck pulled over to help with the aftermath of a truck crossing the median and creating a multi-car crash that left one man dead. Minus the politicians helping, we see or hear stories like this all the time and they often have a sad ending.

Improperly loaded trucks are a leading cause of accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were more than 300,000 truck accidents in 2012 causing over 100,000 injuries and almost 4,000 fatalities. These accidents can cause serious, catastrophic and deadly injuries. Experts agree, that one of the leading causes of truck accidents is improper loading.
