Consumers worry that the world is not ready for self-driving cars

Autonomous and driver-assisted vehicles have been a primary focus in the media for several months, especially after accidents that have occurred when the technology was newly released on the streets. Not surprisingly, many people in Louisiana and elsewhere have started expressing concerns that self-driving cars are not yet safe enough to be available to the public. A recent accident involving an autonomous Uber vehicle underlines this point.

Can working a night shift affect your driving?

Rollover accidents account for large portion of truck fatalities

There is no question that the trucking industry is important for shipping goods across the country.
