Drug and Alcohol Addiction/Misuse

18 Wheeler Accidents Caused by Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Drug and alcohol abuse and addiction represent a widespread problem in the trucking and transportation industry. Drunk truck drivers and drug-impaired truck drivers pose a safety risk on our roads based on their inability to drive properly and the destructive force of their vehicles. Abuse of drugs, including stimulants like speed and crystal methamphetamines, is a common safety concern in the transportation industry.

Federal and state laws impose responsibility on trucking companies to ensure that commercial truck drivers do not abuse alcohol and drugs. Trucking companies must diligently screen and supervise drivers. Following a serious wreck, drivers are required to submit to drug and alcohol testing.
