The public campaign against drunk driving that has been ongoing in the past several decades has been dramatically successful at raising the public's consciousness regarding the dangers of drunk driving. Drunk driving laws have been tightened and public opinion on what is acceptable behavior around driving and drinking has experienced a significant change.
What has not received as much attention is the fact that truck drivers, bus drivers and other commercial drivers may be abusing alcohol or drugs while operating their vehicles as well.
Commercial truck and bus drivers are as susceptible to alcohol and drug problems as anyone else. While some jobs may be less impacted by the consumption of drugs or alcohol, truck driving requires a clear mind and quick response times in order to be able to maintain safe operation.
