Report looks at data on fatigue in truck drivers

With concerns about truck driver fatigue and road safety in California and throughout the country increasing among regulators and law enforcement, a satisfactory solution has not yet been found for measuring the condition. Drivers' Fourth Amendment rights to avoid an unreasonable search and seizure were found in 2011 to have been violated by Minnesota State Police efforts to work from a checklist. One of the most critical problems is that determining fatigue is often subjective. However, the issue is also one that affects truck drivers' long-term health.

Multiple injuries reported in California crash

One person was seriously injured, and up to six others suffered minor injuries in an accident involving five cars that took place at 6:05 a.m. March 8. Police say a Hyundai Sonata was going at a high rate of speed while traveling north on Sepulveda Avenue when it collided with a Yukon Denali that was in the left-turn lane going south on Sepulveda.

A Google self-driving car found to have caused accident

Californians are probably well-aware that Google has been testing its cars on the state's roadways.

On Feb. 14, however, one of the self-driving cars actually caused an accident because of a glitch in the software.
