Long-Haul Truck Drivers Can Avoid Browser Is Using Caffeine


The issue of commercial truck drivers and fatigue has been a volatile one, and that legislation has been under a lot of pressure to help reduce the risk of such accidents.  Commercial truck drivers on the other hand, have always used a number of techniques to help keep sleep away, including taking the naps, and increasing their intake of caffeine.  A new study out of Australia finds that long-haul commercial truck drivers who use caffeine, from a number of different sources, including coffee, tea and caffeinated energy drinks, may have a much lower risk of accidents.
The researchers based their analysis of 530 truck drivers who recently had been involved in an accident.  These drivers are compared with 517 long-haul commercial truck drivers who were not involved in an accident over the past year.  The researchers found that truck driver’s who drank caffeine in the form of coffee, tea or caffeinated energy drinks, were 63% less likely to be involved in an accident, compared to truck drivers who did not drink coffee, tea or caffeinated energy drinks. 
However, Los Angeles truck accident lawyers would warn against taking the results of the study to mean that truck drivers, who do not have enough time to sleep or enough rest, can simply consume gallons of coffee, and remain safe to drive.  The fact is that truck drivers need rest; the Federal House of Service rules are designed to require drivers to get frequent rest, during their workday.  This means they need the rest so that they are able to drive safely, and helps them stay focused and alert.
However, in those situations were a truck driver finds himself dozing off, and needs a quick pick me up, coffee could help.
