Falling asleep while driving is never a good thing. It is even less good when you are driving an 80,000 lb. rig. Unfortunately, many drivers suffer from sleep deprivation leading to fatigue and putting them at risk for falling asleep at the wheel.
It’s that time of year again. Beginning tomorrow, June 6th, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will be hosting the 30th annual International Roadcheck. According to the CVSA, the International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world. During the 72 hour period, an average of 17 trucks or buses are inspected every minute across Canada, the U.S., and Mexico.
