Due to the sheer size and weight of these vehicles, the damage and injury which is caused can be more catastrophic than other type of accidents. Truck drivers are required to be behind the wheel for hours at a time. Driver fatigue is a constant battle, making it even more important that they follow federal regulations involving hours.
