Parents Against Tired Truckers is urging truckers to support legislation which would require the posting of the OSHA Surface Transportation Assistance Act Poster 3113 at all trucking facilities and terminals. The poster is designed to inform drivers of their rights to safe work environment under the STAA, such as not having to drive fatigued.
Patt asks that truckers send a letter of support to their congressman or senator, or to Pat, P.O. Box 209, Lisbon Falls, ME 04252.
And to help truckers stay alert and alive, Patt offers a card featuring a checklist of questions to help truckers recognize if they are suffering from fatigue. For more information, call (207) 353-4572.
