Light drizzle makes fatal car crash 27% likelier

Oklahoma residents may find themselves driving in rain or snow, and they should know how risky this can be. The American Meteorological Society stated recently that the risk for a fatal car crash goes up 34% when there is precipitation on the road. A study from the North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies has some additional things to say, some of which may be eye-opening.

Truck crashes put spotlight on driver fatigue

Truck driver fatigue can result in serious crashes on Oklahoma roadways. Under current regulations, truck drivers are allowed to work for 14 hours per day and spend 11 of those hours driving.

While driver safety is a top priority for trucking companies, it is not always possible to prevent accidents from occurring.

The inspection spree will consist of mostly Level I inspections, which are the most comprehensive, so CMV drivers in Oklahoma should make sure they are compliant with all federal vehicle and driver regulations.
