Over 1,000 people were killed in drunk driving accidents in Texas in 2011, which is a smaller number than those who suffered serious injury. In the United States, truck drivers are held to very tight schedules and must travel great distances in short amounts of time, which can pressure them into driving long after they've become fatigued. This lowers their reaction times and may even result in falling asleep at the wheel. They might also resort to smoking or drinking caffeine, or even drinking alcohol, each of which can affect their instincts and reflexes on the roadways. As a result, a trucking accident may occur.
