Why Are Truck Drivers So Commonly Distracted?
Truck drivers are frequently on the road. It is their job to drive across the country carrying products from place to place. Unfortunately, drivers often times lose focus on the road — which can lead to traumatic or catastrophic accidents.
Some of the most common truck driver distractions include:
- Texting while driving
- Talking on a cell phone
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Truck driver fatigue
- Distractions from internal communication devices
