Common causes of trucker distraction

One of the biggest risks to driver safety in Colorado is trucker distraction. Distractions create a real and present danger for motorists who drive near distracted semi-truck operators. Truckers drive for long hours on the roads and are not immune to the temptations of distracted driving. They often perform multiple functions to operate their vehicles safely. When visual, cognitive and manual distractions are present, truckers who engage with them are not able to give the roads, motorists and pedestrians the attention they deserve to keep them safe.

Cargo securement to be the focus during annual truck inspection

Drivers of commercial vehicles in Colorado should be prepared for the International Roadcheck event that will take place on June 6-8, 2017. The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance conducts this inspection blitz once a year, and this one will focus on ensuring that the cargo being transported by commercial vehicles are secure. Checking cargo securement is a normal part of CVSA's Level I inspections, and by focusing on it in this year's inspection, they hope to stress its importance to truck drivers and fleet operators.

San Francisco-based Starsky Robotics is leaving the development of autonomous highway and city driving technology to companies like Embark and Otto, and the firm is focusing instead on providing truck drivers with remote access during the delicate terminal to final destination phase.
