Why drowsy driving is common among truckers

Drivers in Illinois are probably aware that drowsy driving leads to accidents but may not be aware that the number is at least 100,000 annually in this country. When drivers fall asleep at the wheel, they can injure themselves by going off the road and injuring other drivers and pedestrians by swerving into the other lane. When the vehicle is a commercial truck, the injuries that result can be catastrophic and even fatal.

Soft tissues are the muscles, tendons, ligaments and other non-bony parts of the body. These tissues are often damaged during car accidents when the impact and sudden braking causes harsh movements.
