One of the startling numbers that have been released from the 2010 Roadcheck was that violations for false logs were up over 18% from 2009. I have previously blogged about the problems with false logs and how tired truckers are dangerous truckers who are 2.5 times more likely to be in a wreck. While electric on-board recorders (EOBR’s) are a long way from perfect, they will surely be better than the method we have now.

There are multiple other posts on this blog on the topics of fatigue, sleep apnea, and the dangers of tired truckers because so many people are killed each year as a result of these drivers trying to just get in a  few more miles. Drive safe and pull over when tired!
