New safety scoring system to be tested in September

By September 2018, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration plans to test a new safety scoring method. By April 2019, the safety scoring model will be tested on a larger scale. The agency outlined its plans in a report that was mandated by Congress in 2015. Since 2015, the agency has been working with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to create more accurate scores for carriers in California and elsewhere.

The dangers of driving over-the-road trucks while drowsy

Driving while drowsy has led to a number of automobile accidents and fatalities in California. The exact number of annual accidents and fatalities caused by driving while drowsy is difficult to determine. However, it is estimated that in the United States, at least 100,000 automobile accidents are caused every year by people driving while drowsy.

While talking or texting on a cellphone or taking their gaze from the road to reach and grab something can obviously take their attention from their driving, there are many other types of distraction to consider.
