Unfortunately, despite federal laws and regulations and the instructors of their employers, some truck drivers still choose to drive while intoxicated.
Commercial truckers are subject to even stricter laws that other drivers on the road (for example, 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 drinking and/or using drugs while on the job.
