The future of large truck technology: Platooning

The idea of self-driving cars may be gaining acceptance by New Yorkers, but what about the advent of automated large trucks?

Study evaluates safety of trucker hours of service regulations

As the trucking industry expands to meet the rise in demand of the improved economy, large trucks make up more and more of the vehicles on the roadways in New York. The New York Times has recently suggested federal lawmakers are not doing enough to protect motorists from the hazards of large trucks.

Diabetes: Not an excuse for causing deadly truck accidents

Did you know that federal rules about commercial vehicle operation have loosened to include more diabetic drivers? In years past, people with insulin-dependent diabetes were prevented from obtaining commercial drivers licenses for interstate transport. Now, however, new rules have opened the commercial driving field for Type 1 diabetics and other similar drivers. Although statistics are not very comprehensive with regards to whether diabetic drivers cause many New York City truck accidents, the potential for danger certainly exists. Drivers who suffer from certain health conditions such as insulin-dependent diabetes may lose focus, become disoriented and cause accidents because of low blood sugar or other critical situations.
