With the nation’s biggest truck fleet expected to grow from about 9 million to almost 14 million by 2040, California drivers have had to navigate more complex and dangerous roads.
With a new set of regulations on driver behavior coming into effect later this year, truck drivers are finding themselves at a new crossroads.
To make things easier, the state is launching a new safety program designed to help drivers better avoid collisions, according to a document released by the state Department of Motor Vehicles on Thursday.
The new program is called RoadRunner and it is designed to assist drivers by providing an on-demand training service that provides instruction on how to use and operate vehicles safely.
The state is calling it RoadRunner, a new initiative aimed at making California safer and more reliable for truckers, according the document.
RoadRunner will offer a one-stop shop for truck drivers to receive driver training and to obtain insurance and other required documents, according an agency press release.
RoadRunner will be available for drivers to download through the state’s online platform, the document said.
The state said it will begin the RoadRunner program by offering truck drivers training from the first of January.
By mid-February, the program will expand to include all drivers, including operators, mechanics, and mechanics and mechanics.
In California, drivers must be at least 18 years old and be at or below the age of 21.
The age of majority is 18.
