An exhausted driver is a danger to himself and other motorists,that we cannot emphasize enough.

In this dashcam video dated 21 March 2020, the truck driver is seen dozing off while driving. In no time, the truck leaves the road temporarily waking up the clearly fatigued trucker.

Before gaining control, the truck hits and uproot three street poles, crosses the road and lands up on the opposite side of the road.

The most perplexing thing then happens after the truck stops – he continues his sleep.

Truckers who have worked under tight schedules and so much pressure to deliver will tell you what a rude awakening it is when just one wheel leaves the road.

The degree of exhaustion gripping this man makes one wonder when he last had a rest or if he was using dangerous energy drinks to keep himself awake.
