      One long time ago, one company friend told me that when moving a marching paramilitary column of equipment, 3-4 trucks will surely end up in a cuvette. The main reason - the soldiers fall asleep at the wheel, because the task of the company on the march to ride along the column and yell in the mouth "Do not sleep." Moreover, no one was even injured. In this case, the guy was terribly unlucky - sorry.

        I myself almost left for the "Urals" ... the elder forced me to smoke. It was a matter of 500 km not a joke. Summer, heat, helmets .. hard.

      What birches ?! It’s not known exactly how he died. Maybe the car fell off a cliff.

    My condolences to my relatives .... but somehow it’s muddy, I’ve traveled MRIV myself and I can imagine how you need to drive somewhere before death, and I can only guess about the Urals. It can be assumed that during a driver accident the steering column broke the chest, and I do not really believe in everything else.

    It’s a pity, but the road is such a thing, and even in a stressful atmosphere, and a foreign country, and even a warring one, is the very thing.

    Of course, this will not change the situation 100%, but even if it is 50% it is important. There are no tachographs in military trucks, they work on a schedule from 8 to 18. That's all. But even this schedule is not respected, especially if on the march. There is no observance of the working schedule of the driver, so even a replacement driver would be planted. Not 2 world. My condolences.

      It is unlikely that there, in Syria, you can go somewhere up to 12 hours in a row, but observing the regime of the day is the main thing.
