Big rig drivers in Connecticut understand that safety is an important part of trucking. If a truck driver is not safe, they risk losing their job, destroying property, injuring themselves or causing a fatal accident. An important part of trucker safety is driving a vehicle that meets the safety guidelines laid out by the government.
Smartphones, built-in infotainment systems and automated features are changing the way people in Connecticut drive, so it's no wonder that distracted driving is such a widespread issue. At the same time, the number of fatal car accidents is going up, and though the two trends have not been definitely linked, they are clearly not coincidental.
