Tips for avoiding fatigue in a commercial vehicle

One of the hazards of the trucking industry is fatigue behind the wheel. Truckers in California should always watch out for times when they are yawning and finding it hard to keep their eyes open or their mind on the road. The tips below can help them deal with drowsiness as well as prevent it.

Vehicle safety ratings may be outdated

California consumers who are in the market for a new car often start their search by looking at a vehicle's safety rating. Vehicles are rated from one to five stars, and products that have higher safety ratings tend to be more desirable than those that have lower ones. Cars began to receive such ratings in the 1970s, and the current system was put into place in the 1990s.

Determining drivers' liability in multi-car crashes

California drivers, even if they have never been in an accident before, can guess how hard it is sometimes to determine who was at fault in a crash. Some forms of negligence are hard to prove, such as inattentive driving. The difficulty is even greater in multi-vehicle crashes where perhaps more than one driver is to blame.
