The subsequent development of technology paved the path for current truck drivers. Gasoline-powered engines were developed and transmissions were improved from chain drives to gear ones. As railroads had become fairly congested during the First World War, choices for freight transportation were needed. In those days there were absolutely no regulations to make it mandatory for every truck driver to pass the CDL practice test. By the second half of the century, the concept of people taking up truck driving became common. By 2006, more than ten billion tons of freight was being transported by road using 26 million trucks. This has additionally caused a rise in truck driver jobs.
