COMMERCIAL TRUCK DRIVER FATIGUE, ALERTNESS, AND COUNTERMEASURES SURVEY

A survey was designed and conducted, to extend prior work discussed in the Driver Fatigue and Alertness Study literature review, by collecting additional data about commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers and their job characteristics. It also sought to determine the prevalence of factors that may contribute to fatigue in CMV drivers and to identify and assess the methods used by drivers to alleviate fatigue or its symptoms. This tech brief summarizes the methods and results of that survey.
