Does a CDL require an annual physical exam, like a pilot's license? It seems like it should for truckers carrying hazardous loads, at very least. There was recently an incident where I-5 was closed because a tank truck turned over after the driver had a heart attack. Fortunately he was able to guide the truck onto the shoulder before dying, or he wouldn't have been the only casualty.
