How do electronic trucking logs help reduce truck accidents?

The trucking industry has a large presence on the roadways in West Virginia and other states across the nation. While these large vehicles help to deliver goods and shipments within and across states, semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks pose various risks to those they share the road with.

West Virginia woman injured in rear-end collision

As a previous post discussed, automobile safety technology can be used to reduce or prevent certain types of collisions. Rear-end collisions, in particular, are common, especially during times of increased traffic such as morning and afternoon rush hour. If a driver is not paying attention, this could easily cause the driver to collide with the rear of the vehicle ahead of them. This is what happened recently on a West Virginia highway.

Technology could be used to reduce rear-end collisions

Errors made behind the wheel often lead to car crashes, and when a driver is negligent, distracted or careless, the driver could cause a collision with other vehicles on the roadway. Rear-end collisions are common in West Virginia and other states across that nation and, according to recent data, roughly 1.7 million rear-end collisions occur on U.S. roadways each year. And in those crashes, about 1,700 individuals die and another 500,000 are hurt.
