With the widespread use of smartphones and a productivity culture that forces truckers to stay awake longer, the threat of distracted driving is growing among trucking companies in Texas and across the U.S. Fleet managers should know that there is plenty of science to back the claim that distractions, whether visual, manual or cognitive, raise the risk for accidents.

Man seeks compensation after slip-and-fall injury

A Texas man who slipped and fell while attending an event at the University of Houston is pursuing legal action for his damages. He is suing a number of companies involved with maintaining the Cullen Performance Hall at the university, including ACS Flooring Group, ACS Maintenance Solutions, Aramark Solutions and Aramark Confection Corp. The man said that he was injured two years before on October 31, 2016, when he fell after slipping on a substance in the performance hall's lobby. He says that the companies involved were performing maintenance and renovations in the area when the incident occurred.
