Drivers in Pennsylvania understand that there is a growing concern about fatigued drivers. While it is apparent that various types of vehicles will travel during the late night hours and travel long distance, one vehicle that is frequently seen traveling on the roadways at all hours of the day and night are large trucks. These semi trucks and tractor-trailers often carry large shipments or deliveries a long distance, traveling through several states across the nation.
