The roads throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey are filled with tractor trailers. Unfortunately, many of these tractor trailer drivers are extremely tired and are putting your life at risk. PA and NJ truck crashes occur every day because of tired truckers. In fact, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) estimates that over 750 deaths and 20,000 injuries are caused by tired truckers each year.

Tired truckers who keep driving past the point where they are fully aware put the lives of innocent people in danger each and every day on our roadways. These truckers choose to keep driving when it is unsafe for a number of reasons, including:
- Tight deadlines which are nearly impossible to meet
- Bonuses for early delivery
- Wanting to beat traffic
- Wanting to get ahead of bad weather
- Wanting to get home as soon as possible
While some of these reasons may be tempting, there is never an excuse to drive past the point of exhaustion and put innocent people’s lives in danger. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured because of a trucker’s negligent decision to drive while drowsy, you need to speak with an attorney.
