Driver Error Too High
While many truck drivers do their best to get their rest, maintain a proper speed and avoid distraction, too many are pushed beyond their limits and make bad choices. Too often their company demands that they get as many loads as possible from point A to point B; in the smallest amount of time. This can force the driver to refuse, possibly losing the run or his job, or to push on, despite his reservations.
