Many people have heard the slogan "without trucks, America stops." This is especially true in California, where every supply line from land, sea and air come together and rely on trucks to get products to their final destinations. Construction and other major industries also need truck traffic to survive.
Building and construction is a top industry in California, and thousands of workers work on building sites, renovations and public works every day. The California Occupational Health and Safety Administration (Cal/OSHA) maintains strict guidelines to protect workers' and citizens' safety, so harmful accidents are rare.
With favorable weather and thousands of miles of quality roads, California has one of the highest populations of motorcyclists in the United States. Bikers are rarely alone on the road, and they have to be mindful of the cars, trucks and buses nearby to stay safe.
