Truck Driver Safety

A big demand for truck drivers, and more trucks on the roads as the oil and gas grows in our area, making safety on the roads a concern.

The president of Merchants 5 Star says the truck industry is heavily regulated, with those regulations constantly being reviewed and analyzed all around the country, some changing with in the last 24 hours.

Drivers are limited with how many hours per day and also per week.

Truck drivers are taught to always be defensive, especially in urban areas.

Even more now because if something happens it's on the driver, not the company.

There are more trucks on the road and even though truck drivers are driving carefully, cars need to be aware and remember the blind spot.
