A new regulation has just come down from the DOT requiring all drivers to get tested for sleep apnea if they have certain statistics. 1. A score of 10 or greater on a sleep apnea test about wakefulness 2. A Body Mass Index of over 35 3. A neck measurement greater than 45cm. The driver will then be forced to be tested for Sleep Apnea or will be ineligible for a new DOT health card. The really good news is that in some states, the DOT will be forced to pay for the overnight sleep study to determine if you have sleep Apnea. AND provide the driver with a CPAP machine. The bad news is, this is not all states, AND the test can cost up to $4000 out of pocket for the driver plus the cost of the machine which runs also a few thousand dollars. So, the Obama administration now, unsatisfied with so many drivers on the road is looking to make more professionals unemployed. Way to go Barry! Let's just fuck up some more. Congress needs to repeal this bullshit law, as it will take many well qualified drivers and make them unemployed for something that is not a proven serious risk factor. No I can't give you a link, I just found out about this first hand by having to take my DOT physical and this is the fun I just went through. Now to find out if the government pays for the test and machine, or I will be unemployed by September because of these fuckos.
