In his 11th and 12th monthly installments (over the past 13 years) on the subject of driver fatigue for National Bus Trader magazine, Transportation Alternatives President Ned Einstein once again attacks “shift inversion” as the major cause of Motorcoach drivers (and others) falling asleep at the wheel. (The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance received more than 500,000 complaints about motorcoach safety!) In these unusual pieces, Mr. Einstein outlines a way to avoid the phenomenon he coined as “Bus Lag” with an approach known as “Bio-Sensitive Driver Assignment.” These articles may be viewed at www.transalt.com – scroll down on Home Page to “Articles and Publications by Ned Einstein.” You will see the articles Bio-Sensitive Driver Assignment, Parts 1 and 2.  Beginning in September, 2014, Mr. Einstein will begin a short series of installments in NBT titled “Bus Lag.”
