How much do distractions impact truck drivers?

Distractions can cause a truck driver to lose control of the vehicle or fail to respond timely to an oncoming hazard. While addressing distractions for all motorists in West Virginia and elsewhere is crucial, reducing distracted truck drivers is important because these large vehicles frequently cause large-scale accident sites with serious injuries and fatalities.

Preventing cargo tank truck rollover accidents

The concerns relating to cargo tank trucks not only lies with the hazardous material that they might be transporting, but also with the higher likelihood that these trucks could rollover if proper care is not taken. Therefore, in order to increase safety, prevent rollover crashes and reduce the chances of hazardous materials spilling on the roadways, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA, in association with the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, created specific training materials for cargo tank truck drivers.

Examining the mental effects of traumatic brain injuries

Any type of head injury can be cause for concern. Just as the causes of such injuries can be numerous, the effects of those injuries vary in degree. Physical effects such as paralysis are an obvious concern and can be life changing. Traumatic brain injuries can also have different - but just as damaging - mental effects as well.
