Fleet operators are using technology to combat distracted driving

The worrying increase in distracted driving accidents is often blamed on smartphones and sophisticated automobile entertainment, navigation and information systems. However, many drivers crash each year in Michigan and around the country from just letting their minds wander. The problem is an especially thorny one for the freight moving sector because accidents involving semi-tractor trailers are usually serious. Furthermore, the pressure that truck drivers work under often leaves them fatigued and prone to distraction.

Truck drivers and drowsy driving

Commercial truck drivers in Michigan should be aware that they are more likely to engage in drowsy driving than other motorists. According to some estimates, drowsy driving is responsible for at least 100,000 motor vehicle accidents in the U.S. each year. Because of their enormous weight and size, commercial trucks and big rigs are likely to cause catastrophic and deadly injuries when they are involved in accidents.

Police identify victims of fatal motorcycle crash

Michigan residents may have heard about the crash between a vehicle and a motorcycle that occurred on the night of June 28 in La Salle Township. Michigan State Police of the Monroe post have identified the two motorcycle riders who were killed in that crash. Both were Monroe County residents, ages 53 and 45. However, the identity of the 52-year-old driver of the vehicle has not been released.
