Samenvatting Earlier work on the involvement of truck drivers in accidents is outlined. The author then examines in more detail evidence of the use of alcohol, medication and narcotics. It is suggested that these factors may be linked to the working conditions experienced by truck drivers, in particular work duration, sleep deprivation and fatigue. Attention is drawn to the occurrence of pathological sleeping disorders among professional drivers.
