Why “Extreme Weather Driving for All Drivers” Matters:

There are around 5,000 commercial motor vehicle (CMV)-related fatalities, and only 14 percent of these fatalities occurred to the truck occupants.

There are more than 120,000 CMV-related injuries, and only 20 percent of injuries occurred to the truck occupants.

More than 650 truck drivers die on the job, representing 12 percent of all types of workplace deaths— the most fatalities of any single job title or occupation.

Truck drivers have more nonfatal injuries than workers in any other occupation. One-half of the nonfatal CMV driver injuries are serious sprains and strains, and the other injuries are bruises, fractures, cuts and lacerations, soreness, and multiple traumas.
