How truck drivers use technology to avoid fatigue-based accidents

Truck drivers must adhere to work time rules for their own safety and other road users’ safety. Work time rules ensure that drivers take regular breaks and don’t endlessly work. 50 years ago, drivers would drive 15-20 hours straight, get a few hours’ sleep, then repeat the journey. That’s no longer acceptable. Health and safety concerns have driven a raft of legislation to reduce fatigue behind the wheel so that drivers don’t fall asleep while driving. Some countries use tachographs to monitor work time, and others use logbooks, either paper or electronic.

All You Need To Know About Battery Reconditioning

Battery reconditioning is a very easy cost-effective way to revive dead batteries. Doing so, not only is good for you financially, but it is also an environmentally friendly way of making the most out of your batteries. In its essence, battery reconditioning refers to bringing back to life dead batteries and elongating their healthy life and charge capacity.
