How truck drivers can prevent fatigue on the road

Driver fatigue is one of the leading causes of truck accidents on the road. After driving for hours, truck drivers might start to feel both physically and mentally exhausted. The highway starts to “blur” together, and the driver is at risk of nodding off at the wheel. Being distracted for even a moment can lead to serious consequences. Fortunately, there are steps that drivers can take to limit their risk of falling asleep at the wheel.

Ways truck drivers can avoid driver fatigue

If drivers find themselves experiencing fatigue, they should re-evaluate their sleep schedule and see if they can figure out a pattern that works for them. While their schedule might make it difficult to get a full night’s sleep, they may find some relief by taking a short nap in the middle of the day. Eating healthier is also a great way to help avoid truck accidents. Choosing nutritious options instead of burgers or doughnuts can give drivers extra energy and help them stay alert for longer periods of time.

While it might be tempting to drink lots of coffee on the road, caffeine can actually make drivers more tired in the long run. Caffeine and alcohol can both cause fatigue after the initial effects are over. On a similar note, being dehydrated can cause drowsiness, so drivers should make sure they’re getting plenty of water. They should also make sure their sitting area is safe and comfortable to eliminate issues caused by improper seating, including fatigue and back pain.

What to do after a trucking accident

Victims of truck accidents might wish to speak with an attorney about building a case against the opposing party. If the client or their loved one was seriously injured or killed in a trucking accident, an attorney might help them collect evidence and present a lawsuit in court.
