FMCSA: Trucking Accidents On The Rise

According to the latest FMCSA report on truck accidents, there was a 34% decrease in the number of fatal trucking accidents in America between 2005 and 2009. However, officials saw a whooping 40% increase in fatal truck crashes between 2009 and 2017. 

In addition, regulators said that the number of trucks involved in fatal accidents increased 10% from 2016 to 2017, while the number of trucks involved in personal injury crashes increased by 5% in the same period. 

Property damage accidents involving large trucks increased by 3%.

Can Fatigue Contribute To Trucking Accidents?

Drowsy driving, like distracted and drunk driving, is highly dangerous. 

According to the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB), fatigue is a factor in about 25% of all fatal trucking accidents. But what many drivers do not realize is that driving while tired is negligent behavior. 

When third parties act negligently, they put the lives of others, as well as their own, in grave danger. 

In such cases involving drowsy driving, however, drivers might not be the only negligent parties. 

Many trucking companies and other firms force drivers to meet unrealistic scheduling expectations. This leads to sleep deprivation. 

Other factors that may contribute to driver fatigue include:

  • Poor eating habits
  • Loading heavy cargos between trips
  • How long drivers can be on the road for a single trip
  • Irregular schedules
  • Too much night driving
