Both the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have conducted extensive studies regarding the causation of truck accidents in the U.S. These government agencies analyze crash data regularly, in order to better determine both what causes these collisions to occur and what can be done to prevent additional crashes from occurring in the future. According to federal data provided by these agencies, it is estimated that more than one out of every 10 injurious truck accidents that occurs in the U.S. is associated with driver fatigue. This is perhaps unsurprising, given that Americans regularly push themselves to work hard and play hard, which is an approach to life and work that tends to result in the sacrifice of healthy rest periods. Additionally, the trucking industry is notorious for pushing its drivers to operate their vehicles while fatigued in order to better serve the bottom line of the trucking companies themselves.
