Sleep apnea screening proposed for truck drivers

Truck drivers in Mississippi might be required to undergo a screening for sleep apnea under a proposed regulation that will affect drivers nationwide, but many are speaking out against the proposal as well. The government received several hundred public comments about the regulation, and many objected on the grounds that the drivers would be required to pay for the screening themselves at a cost of more than $2,500.

Social Media Abuse of Nursing Home Residents

Nursing home abuse is not a new issue but the way in way it occurs has changed. Social media now provides another avenue for abusers to harm nursing home residents. A recent case in Iowa is a perfect example of how laws regulating the use of social media and nursing home treatment are out of date.

Brake safety week for commercial trucks

Some Mississippi commercial trucking accidents happen because of faulty brakes. Because these mechanical issues often go unnoticed, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration partnered for a week of nationwide brake inspections between Sept. 11 and 17.

Concern from road safety experts about growing fatality rates

According to a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of deaths from motor vehicle accidents in 2015 increased by 7.2 percent. Mississippi motorists may be surprised to know that this was the highest single-year increase since 1966. The total number of fatalities, 35,092, is lower than the 42,708 who died in 2005, but the rate had been steadily declining up through 2014.
