How does fatigue affect truck drivers?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Texas regulatory agencies prohibit truck drivers from operating more than 11 hours in a single day. Commercial truck drivers are also prohibited from operating more than 60 hours of driving time in a workweek, or more than 70 hours of driving time over the course of eight consecutive days.

Regulatory agencies make these policies because they know that truck driver fatigue poses a major threat to everyone on the roadways. During the latest reporting year in the US, the FMCSA says that approximately 148,000 people were injured across the country. In Texas, the state DOT says that large tractor-trailer crashes were responsible for:

  • 786 suspected serious injury crashes
  • 2,530 suspected non-incapacitating injury crashes
  • 3,406 possible injury crashes
  • 465 fatal crashes
