This infographic presents information about causes of fatigue for truck drivers, and provides statistics about how fatigue contributes to accidents resulting in death or injury. The orange and blue color palette creates a solid foundation for this design. Illustrations correctly communicate that the subject is related to truck driving. There is no representation of fatigue or collisions, however, which makes the visual communication less precise than it could be. This infographic's text is informative and free of errors, except for punctuation inconsistencies. Some content is presented in brief phrases, but most data is embedded in paragraphs, making it difficult for the reader to retain information. Some data is represented with simple visualization techniques, but these could be used more effectively throughout. The section "Consequences of Fatigue in Transportation," in particular, would benefit from visualizations showing how risk increases with long hours and irregular shifts. The text also fails to create an immediate link between the "Sleep Apnea" section and the main subject, making it seem out of place. Overall, this infographic could improve by distilling its content and pairing it with more specific illustrations and data visualizations. We'd give this a D.
