Could the new ELD regulations make trucks safer on the roads?

Sharing the road with 18-wheelers makes many Texas drivers nervous, and you may count yourself as one of those people. Their size and weight makes them intimidating, and many passenger-vehicle drivers do what they can to avoid being around them. Those healthy fears are often justified since accidents involving these mammoth vehicles tend to result in serious or deadly injuries to other drivers.

Curbing fatigue and truck accidents

Like most Texas residents, you regularly see tractor trailers and other large vehicles hauling goods on a variety of roads across the state. Whether delivering produce to a grocery store, consumer electronics to other stores or gasoline to fuel stations, these big rigs are a necessary part of our world. They are also a potential source for serious injuries or death if they are involved in accidents.

Yet what many do not fully appreciate is the amount of training these drivers go through in order to avoid accidents. Often such training causes them to be more aware of what is going on around them than other drivers. The notion that they are rarely injured in accidents may also be untrue.
