Truck crash kills two on Interstate 5

Most people want to be good drivers. They understand that driving a motor vehicle can be dangerous and that they should stay alert and focused driving when they are behind the wheel. However, driving long stretches of highway in California can be dull. It may be so boring that it lulls the mind into something of a trance, sometimes called 'highway hypnosis.' For instance, if you crossed into California from Oregon, heading down Interstate 5, you could remain on the highway for 796 miles before you would arrive at the Mexican border.

Roadside marijuana tests proposed

With the legalization of recreational use of marijuana in California, motorists will have yet another large concern about highway safety when driving on the streets and roads of the state. While the effects of drugged driving can be similar to other impaired driving behavior, such as drunk driving, enforcement will likely be more difficult and complicated by the different manner in which marijuana operates in the body.

New study warns of drowsy driving risk

In a city like Los Angeles, it is easy to lose sleep. Many people have to work late nights or overnights, whether in medicine, law enforcement, transportation or entertainment, and there are many businesses that rarely or never close. Those workers and their customers may have disrupted sleep habits that can lead to their never truly feeling well-rested.

Hours of service rules: obscure, but important for highway safety

Highway safety is an important issue in California. With hundreds of thousands of miles of road across the state serving more than 38 million people and 24 million licensed drivers, issues like distracted driving, vehicle safety equipment and road design and maintenance all can literally be the difference between life and death.
