Many people rely on public transportation and commercial vehicles to transport them to events and as their method of travel for recreational purposed. But despite the faith we place in public and private forms of transportation, proper training, vehicle maintenance and thorough hiring practices can be a vital part of keeping passengers and surrounding vehicles safe from harm. Drowsy driving, long hours behind the wheel, drugs and alcohol are all problems that can affect how a driver operates a commercial vehicle and reacts.
