Why should you never pull in front of a truck?

Driving around big rigs requires a heightened awareness of following the rules of the road in New Jersey. If you are distracted or driving recklessly around a large truck, you are increasing your risks of being involved in an accident and if you are in a smaller passenger car, the sheer size and weight of a large truck could mean a dangerous outcome for you if you are involved in a crash with one. 

Study suggests obese truckers have higher crash risk

Back in 2002, the University of Minnesota Morris began the Truckers & Turnover Project, a multi-year study involving students, faculty and several motor carriers. The cooperating firms operate in the long-haul truckload segment of the trucking industry, a segment that has a high turnover rate. The goal of the study, initially, was to project and identify factors that predict retention rates, productivity and other on-the-job outcomes for truckers across New Jersey and other states. One such outcome is crash risk.

Drugged driver kills three, does not recall incident

People in New Jersey who are concerned about the problems associated with impaired driving need to know that this issue includes not only alcohol but also drugs. Unfortunately, many people who are either addicted to drugs or who simply choose to use them for whatever reason still get behind the wheels of cars when under the influence of these substances. Just as with alcohol, this puts innocent people at risk for no reason.
