Safety experts outraged as Trump administration nixes sleep apnea test for truckers and train engineers

Safety experts outraged as Trump administration nixes sleep apnea test for truckers and train engineers | 08 Aug 2017 | The Trump administration is cutting regulations that would require sleep apnea screening for truck drivers and train engineers.

The fatigue-inducing disorder, which affects roughly one in five Americans, has been blamed for deadly rail crashes in New York City and New Jersey and several highway crashes. However, late last week the Federal Railroad Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration said they are no longer pursuing the regulation that would require testing for it.
