FMCA alerts drivers during solar eclipse


The U.S. Government Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is cautioning the drivers of the solar eclipse impending on Aug. 21 which will possibly produce one of the strongest distractions in years.

“On Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will occur across 14 States – from Oregon to South Carolina,” the FMCSA said in a statement. “Lasting only two minutes or so, the eclipse will darken the country during the middle of the day when millions are on American roads, potentially causing one of the driver distractions in years.”

The Federal Highway Administration has provided all the information related to the appearance on a website along with suggestions for driving safely as it happens.
