Bendix announces new brake systems for commercial trucks

Trucking companies in Texas and across the U.S. have had their eyes on the new products unveiled by Bendix at the inaugural North American Commercial Vehicle Show in Atlanta. The brake manufacturer has created an electronic parking brake called the Intellipark system, which uses interlocks placed in critical areas like the seat belt and cab door to recognize when the driver is leaving the vehicle. If the driver has forgotten to engage the air brakes at that time, the system will do so.

Lawmakers revive FMCSA sleep apnea rule

Truck drivers in Texas and around the country who may be at high risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea may soon be required to undergo mandatory testing for the condition. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration abandoned plans to introduce a rule mandating sleep apnea testing for at-risk truck drivers when industry groups raised objections and public hearings failed to provide enough evidence to move the proposal forward, but the mantle has since been taken up by Democrats in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
