It is difficult to link an accident to fatigue

It is difficult to link an accident to fatigue

  • Fatigue is a complex system in which one finds different vigilance states varying from slightly fatigued to sleeping

  • Fatigue is often linked to being inattentive

    Therefore

  • Only an in depth accident investigation can identify if fatigue is the main cause of the accident

Main causes of accidents

Main Causes of Accidents

The top main causes of accidents between a truck and other road users are:

1. Non-adapted speed

2. Failure to observe intersection rules

3. Improper manœuvre when changing lanes

Despite common belief, fatigue was the main cause in only 6% of the accidents
