Here are a few critical things that could occur:

  1. Insurance & Truck Repairs
  2. Possible Explosion – if a colliding compact car were to catch on fire –
  3. Rollover
  4. Possible Death or Critical Injuries to Yourself or Others

The biggest factor that created the December Mandate of 2017 was to require rest breaks to truckers in the hopes of resulting in less accidents due from falling asleep at the wheel which will potentially avoid more accidents and less likely for these critical outcomes to occur.
