Hours Of Service Rules For Truck Drivers To Help Prevent Fatigue-related Accidents

Driving a truck can be physically tasking and potentially dangerous if not handled correctly. Whether the driver is transporting raw materials, hazardous liquids, or other products, it is important that he or she is well rested and capable of vigilantly driving long hours. Because truck drivers are conducting large vehicles, they must be completely alert and aware of their surroundings at all times. Fatigue or drowsiness cause drivers to lose focus and crash.

Permian Basin, Eagle Ford Traffic Fatalities Reach Near 700 in 2014

Last year, traffic fatalities in the Permian Basin increased 16 percent from 365 to 424 while traffic fatalities in the Eagle Ford Shale region increased 13 percent from 240 to 272. In both regions combined, there were approximately 8,600 accidents that resulted in injury or fatality. Accidents in this region are attributed to - in large part, and in some cases, almost exclusively - to the drilling and fracking booms in these areas. The Permian Basin alone accounts for 14% of domestic oil production.
