Attempts to keep tired drivers off the road hampered

Commercial truck drivers in California and the rest of America are subject to a federal regulation whenever they are at work on the road.

In the first nine months of 2014, there were 23,796 traffic deaths, and in the first nine months of 2015 the agency has estimated there were over 26,000 deaths. This means that traffic fatalities were up 9.3 percent nationwide for the first time after years of declining steadily.
