TIPS FOR TRUCK DRIVERS TO REMAIN ALERT

As a truck driver, you have a responsibility to avoid fatigue and remain alert. You might also have a demanding schedule that can leave you feeling fatigued. Although there are many rules and regulations in place to help you avoid exhaustion and the impaired driving it causes, you can still suffer from it, even while you operate within the established guidelines. If you are serious about your safety and of the other drivers around you, there are still steps that you can take to avoid the dangers associated with chronic fatigue.

Rules about Sleeping. As a truck driver, below are the minimal regulations for sleeping and shift work that you must follow:

  • A driver may drive no more than 11 hours of every 14 hour shift, if they have been off-duty for 10 or more hours. Remember, the 14 hour shift includes time spent on stops.
  • If you have been on duty for a total of 60 hours during seven consecutive days, you need to cease driving. Furthermore, you may not drive if you have been on duty for a total of 70 hours over eight consecutive days. You may start the count over again only after 34 hours of off duty time.
  • If you are using a sleeper berth, then you must spend at least 8 hours of consecutive time in the berth. You must also take an additional 2 hours off duty either in or out of the berth.
