Is there a link between caffeine and truck crashes?

Have you gotten jittery after drinking an entire Red Bull? Have you ever had too much caffeine and too little food and found yourself unfocused and irritable? Or, maybe you've made the mistake of having a cup of coffee too late in the evening and found yourself unable to sleep but unable to do anything productive.

Why do truck accidents keep increasing?

You can hardly look at the news without seeing something about another major truck accident. Despite all of the attempts to increase safety regulations over the years, the number of fatal truck accidents keeps increasing even though road accidents in general are down.

Fatalities from truck accidents rose in 2019

New estimates from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released this month indicate that truck accident fatalities rose in 2019 by 1% over 2018. The figures were obtained via preliminary reports through the Fatality Analysis Reporting System, or FARS, which provides both Congress and the general public with information about highway safety and fatal crashes.

Legal help for victims of commercial vehicle accidents

Commercial vehicles, including buses and taxicabs, are held to a higher standard than the average driver. Drivers are always held to a reasonable standard of care in terms of the level of care and caution they are expected to exercise when they operate their vehicles, which helps ensure the safety of others. Commercial vehicles, though, can cause much more devastation when involved in an accident. For this reason, these vehicles are subjected to higher safety standards.
