We here at the Lombardi Law Firm believe in safety promotion. A tired Trucker is a danger to everyone including the trucker's life and health. If you want to see your kids again after your haul stop and rest, even a brief nap will increase your ability to remain alert while driving. If you are tired please stop and rest even if you have hours left on your log time. If you require a brief rest follow the link for a list of Official Rest Stops. Another place to catch a nap is at the many Fuel Stops in New Jersey or the Unofficial Rest Areas.
