Do truck drivers have to submit to drug and alcohol testing?

Yes, and on a regular basis. Federal regulations require trucking companies to conduct drug and alcohol tests on all drivers before they can be hired, and these companies must also conduct additional tests at random while drivers are on duty. The reason for these regulations is that many truck drivers turn to drugs or alcohol to help them stay awake during long shifts, or as a coping mechanism because they miss their family members. If you suspect that drugs or alcohol were involved in your accident, we can see to it that the proper testing is done.
