Unfortunately, some truck drivers drink and drive despite federal laws, federal trucking regulations, and the instructors of their employers. Commercial truckers are subject to even stricter laws that other drivers on the road – they cannot have a blood alcohol level beyond 0.02 without breaking the law. They are also often subject to drug and alcohol testing, both by the US Department of Transportation and by their employers. However, this still does not stop some truckers from driving and driving or using drugs and driving – two activities that can certainly lead to traffic accidents.
