    Just ask yourself if you would be happy extending a commercial pilots hours, just to improve profitability for their airline, or extend a surgeons hours, because the hospital thinks more money could be made. Lives will be lost if this is approved. Start counting the cost. No person can concentrate for more than 11 hours and perform a highly skilled task to the same level as a fresh and rested person. These are human lives we are talking about killing here. These could be your children, your parents in the other vehicle. Don’t listen to industry arguments about what a responsible driver will do to self manage fatigue. Think about what an irresponsible driver, pressured by a profit motivated boss, will do to self manage fatigue – and the carnage they will cause.
