Isn't getting caught in the possession of an illegal substance reasonable cause for urinalysis? Isn't any performance issue of a driver reasonable cause(eg. continuous late deliveries, poor attitude with customer relations, abuse of company equipment, etc.)?

As for an automatic loss of license, the Federal government or even the US DOT doesn't enforce the issuing and revoking of licenses; Isn't that an individual State function? So, for instance, a driver violates an OOS order, that is a federally defined offense. But, the State that issue the driver his/her license would be responsible for taking the action of revoking/suspending the license.

I appreciate your sharing with us your concerns. What you have told us doesn't seem to be the complete story. Perhaps, you protecting the innocent or quilty. Or are you concerned that their are others who have slipped thru the cracks in the law and have not reported an incident as required?

Probably see a lot of white people working the fields.
Imagine the day when we will be hauling bales of HEMP to processsing plants where it is turned into fabric, paper, and other useful products.That will be the day I see people in D.C. working for the People.

It's the complete story as I'm being told. We are a 2 man ( plus the boss ) operation, with one part time/ on all driver. I'm hoping not to get a phone call on a day off saying that I have to take a 8 hour ride to get his truck out of a impound yard somewhere. His stupidity is going to get me pulled into a lot of dot inspections.

Just piss or hair test everyone if there are only a few drivers, that way it's politically correct as they say.. However I don't even think you need a reason to test, it's all federal and the owner wants it done is good enough reason..

I don't want a driver who has a drug problem anywhere near my equipment. Drivers are subject to random drug testing at any time. You can also test them as often as you wish. If you suspect a driver is taking drugs, you may want to hit him with a random drug test. If a driver gets caught with drugs in YOUR truck, it could cost you a lot of headaches. If he has drugs in the truck or in his system and is involved in an accident, it could cost you much more than you may realize.

We are signed up to a service that alerts us to any change in the driver's record. Also as Chris1 said you can go on the states sites and check. I haven't done all states as most of our drivers are from Florida. By the way I see you are from Raynham, I grew up close to there and use to go to the dog track a lot as a little kid in Raynham.

I quit that company about 3 weeks ago, so I could care less what happens to them. Merrick4, I grew up in REHOBOTH, but live in Raynham now.

All the boss man has to do is run a DMV on him...It will state suspended, revoked etc. The driver signed away his privacy right in this regard when he hired in.
