What is the sleeper berth provision?

The last thing that you want to encounter on the road in Monmouth County is a fatigued truck driver. Fortunately, federal guidelines have been enacted that prevent drivers from working long hours to help limit the chances of them becoming fatigued. However, their application is not always uniform. If, for example, a truck is equipped with a sleeper berth, its driver is allowed to adhere to a policy known as the sleeper berth provision. 

Driving after drinking is always a poor judgment call

Many people in New Jersey may believe that they can tell when it is safe for them to drive after drinking. Whether they base their decision on how many drinks they had or how they feel, that assessment could be a fatal mistake. 

Why are motorcyclists better drivers?

As much as you love taking your motorcycle out on the roadways of New Jersey, sometimes you have to drive your car instead. The good news is that, when you are behind the wheel, you are more likely to be a safer driver than the motorists around you. How does your riding experience improve your driving skills?

Explaining the dangers of eating while driving

With all of the attention being placed on preventing people from texting and driving, you likely feel very safe from distracted drivers. Yet are there other activities that many in Monmouth County engage in that can be just as distracting? Several people have come to us here at Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli following car accidents surprised to learn just how dangerous it can be to eat while behind the wheel. If you have recently been involved in an accident caused by one who otherwise appeared to be a responsible driver, you may want to ask yourself whether eating while driving was the cause of your collision.
