Throughout Tennessee and other states, trucks, tractor trailers, and big rigs are common sites on the roads, highways, and expressways. Certainly, big trucks are an important part of both intrastate and interstate commerce. Theres large commercial trucks also pose a significant risk of serious injuries and deaths to adults and children alike to the size disparity between these trucks and common personal vehicles / automobiles. Because of this, it is important that commercial truck drivers are well trained, alert, and well rested. Furthermore, excessive speed and daydreaming need to be avoided as well. Finally, driver distractions should be limited and removed whenever possible.
