Truckers want a right to text while driving | Virginia tractor trailer wreck lawyer

Driven to Distraction – Truckers Insist on Keeping Computers in the Cab.

Truckers want to keep the right to use their on-board computers while driving, and to be exempt from a potentially nationwide ban on texting while driving.

This despite a study by Virginia Tech Transportation Institute that found that truckers who use on-board computers had a ten times higher risk of crashing, nearly crashing or weaving out of their lane when using the devices.

The study also found that risk was 23 times higher when the truckers texted while driving.

This is especially concerning because drivers whose cars are in an accident with a truck often die or at best are severely hurt.

The article says that the truckers feel pressured to use the devices because of tight deadlines for their deliveries.
