How does sleep apnea affect truck drivers?

The tractor-trailers California residents see whizzing past them on highways weigh an astounding 30,000 pounds when empty and a maximum of 80,000 when loaded fully. Therefore, a truck accident with a car often yields devastating results for the automobile, its driver and occupants. Certain factors, in addition to size, associated with trucks make them more susceptible to be involved in crashes. This is why truck drivers need to be even more vigilant and careful on the road and sleep apnea prevents that from happening.
