Distracted driving goes well beyond texting and driving

Much attention has been given these days to the dangers of texting and driving. However, there are a myriad of ways in which a driver can be distracted. For example, some people do not think twice about eating or grooming while behind the wheel. They may be tuning the radio. They may be engrossed in talking to passengers or talking on their cell phones. They may be reading a map or using a navigation system to direct them where to go. However, all of these behaviors can distract a driver, leading to serious or even fatal car accidents.

Regulations aim to keep truckers from driving while fatigued

Fatigued truck drivers in Ocala will often go to many lengths to keep driving. After all, the more hours they are on the road, the more money they will make. However, a large, fully-loaded truck can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, meaning a crash involving a semi-truck can cause significant damage, and could seriously injure or kill other drivers or passengers. For this reason, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has regulations regarding how long a trucker can be on the road before being required to take a rest break.
