Many Virginia residents may know that truck drivers often work long hours. To make their deliveries and to get home to their families, truck drivers may try to drive for long periods of time at a stretch. Unfortunately, driving without proper rest can be extremely dangerous and may contribute to truck accidents. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration recognizes the importance of preventing truck driver fatigue, and the associated accidents, and imposes limits on truck drivers regarding how long they may drive without breaks.

Driver negligence important in motorcycle accident liability


Virginia motorcyclists may be aware of the risk of accidents, and therefore injuries, as they ride their bikes. Motorcyclists have less physical protection from other vehicles on the road, and their mode of transportation is much smaller than a large truck, or even a small car. This can lead to increased dangers for motorcyclists navigating Virginia's roads. Accidents will happen between vehicles and motorcyclists, and when they do, one of the best things a motorcyclist can do is to be prepared for the legal landscape that may follow.
