Driver fatigue has been always an issue disturbing the transportation government departments as well as many commercial fleets. It is a potentially fatal risk that need to be taken seriously. However, still there are some fleet managers do not realize the safety risk associated with tired drivers, which will puts drivers and the business at high risk.

What influence will the fatigue bring to the business or the people? According to the Large Truck Crash Causation Study, 13 percent of commercial motor vehicle drivers involved in an accident were fatigued when they crashed. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 100,000 of the police-reported crashes that happen every year result in 1,550 deaths and $12.5 billion in losses due to driver fatigue.

Despite the statistics, we still can see drivers continue to drive with little sleep. In fact, about one out of every 25 adult drivers will report having fallen asleep at the wheel sometime in the past 30 days.

Actually there is a reason that the driver doesn’t know whether they are tired or not. To which level of sleep should they stop and take a sleep. That is, it's impossible for them to measure fatigue. For this reason, there come out laws designed to limit the number of hours a driver is allowed to be on the road. If your drivers are found driving with too many hours on the books, you face stiff penalties. If a fatigued driver is involved in an accident, your liability increases significantly.

Except the laws, today many driver fatigue alert devices have emerged in the market as driver assistance. The Driver Fatigue Monitor MR688 is a very mature product from CareDrive. This device works to give the driver an early warning alarm when it detects drowsiness of the driver. Also it can be connected with the fleets gps tracking system so the fleet managers can understand the driver’s sleep status in real-time.

Driver fatigue alarms work to help your fleet stay compliant and reduce your business risk. If you want to know more of the system, please visit www.care-drive.com.
