What to do to avoid drowsy driving

Drivers in Mississippi may find themselves feeling drowsy on the road despite their best intentions. That's why it's important to follow a few tips to avoid fatigue. The best way to prevent sleepiness behind the wheel is to get the recommended minimum of seven hours of sleep every night. Those who do so but still have problems should see a doctor because they may have a sleep disorder.

Multiple people die in highway truck crash

It is important for both truck and passenger car drivers to protect their safety while on Mississippi roads. An accident that occurred on Interstate 75 in Florida was caused by a commercial truck driver colliding with a Honda. This was according to the Florida Highway Patrol, and there was no reason given as to why the driver left his lane. After colliding with the Honda, the commercial truck crashed through a median.

How truck and car crashes differ

There are several ways that a Mississippi truck accident differs from a car collision. Starting with the most obvious, truck accidents tend to result in more severe property damage and physical injuries. The weight of a commercial truck being so great, the force of its impact will often leave a passenger vehicle beyond repair.

Trucker fatigue can be deadly

Mississippi citizens benefit from the services provided by the nation's truckers. Literally running 24/7 to deliver products across the country, truck drivers and the trucking industry form an important part of the American economy. Like any business, however, there are challenges to maintain performance standards while attempting to expand market share and increase profitability. One such challenge for the industry is truck driver safety. Not only is this relevant to a business' bottom line, but it also impacts motorists who share the roads.
