We need to get tired truckers off the road [Letter]

July 06, 2014

Thank you, Ed Slattery, for continuing to fight for truck safety for those who might suffer from a trucker- caused accident and for the truckers themselves ("Keep tired truckers off the road," June 29).

It is hard to believe that anyone would put forward a suggestion that more hours could be added to driving given our current knowledge about the negative effects of disrupting normal sleep cycles and of sleep deprivation on the functioning of the brain, especially judgment.
