Truckers need sleep to stay safe

Do you get enough sleep before you get behind the wheel?

While most truckers know that a solid 8 hours of sleep is recommended for alert and safe driving, deadlines and tight schedules often get in the way.

When they don’t have enough time for a full night’s rest, stressed truckers use methods ranging from quick naps to energy drinks to keep rolling. This may keep drivers on time, but it can’t make up for a good night’s rest.

How do you get the sleep you need to drive safely? Do you have any tips or advice to offer other truckers? Leave a comment below and tell us your story.
