Falling asleep at the wheel

Posted by AndrewT on 26th Nov 2021

Shocking footage of a driver falling asleep at the wheel of a HGV travelling on the M5 in November was recently posted on YouTube. Driver fatigue is a common factor in incidents involving HGV's and with well publicised driver shortages in the UK it is a stark reminder of the need to manage drivers' hours compliance.
