Ever wonder what the next big step in safety may be? Last summer, Samsung has shown us what may be the future in preventing accidents caused by drivers attempting to overtake semis by attaching wireless cameras to the front of the truck and displaying the view on the back doors on a large screen.
Love or hate it, however, the idea is unlikely to be seen in public for a while – Samsung is still currently testing out the idea and working to comply with national protocols.
2015 was an eventful year – TruckingInfo.com has listed the biggest acts for truckers passed in the year. How do you feel about these changes? How has 2015 been for you? Sound off on our Facebook page!
With the amount of sitting involved in driving, it’s no surprise that back pain can be a continual risk for truckers. Thankfully, there are many resources for finding exercises to both alleviate and prevent back pain, such as the Healthy Trucker, Trucker News, and other articles, including this piece by XRS. Be sure to stay safe and healthy!
