The duties of a truck driver require long hours on the road, away from home. In order to ensure the safety of both truck drivers and other motorists on the road, certain regulations are in place that specify – among other things – how frequently they must stop and rest.
Distracted driving is proving to be a major cause for concern on Nebraska roads. When drivers are not watching the roads, they are not able to react to sudden changes. A car may stop, a child may run to get a ball, or a deer could jump in front of the car without a distracted driver even noticing. Because distracted driving is a serious problem, officials in Nebraska are working on ways to better enforce laws and keep the roads safe.
Nebraska motorcycle riders certainly enjoy those extra days of riding that come with milder autumns, springs and winters. Unfortunately, along with longer stretches of good riding weather come a rise in motorcycle accident fatalities.
