The use of controlled substances or alcohol while operating any vehicle places everyone on the road at risk. This risk is even greater when the vehicle in question is a commercial truck weighing multiple tons. Federal and State law have established programs within trucking companies designed to prevent accidents and injuries resulting from impairment due to the use of alcohol or drugs by drivers of commercial motor vehicles. These laws require testing of drivers, disqualification of drivers found to be under the influence, and require recordkeeping of these tests.
