Truckers should register in FMCSA DRUG TESTING DATA BASE to alter jobs in 2020

Truckers must register with federal drug database to change jobs starting in 2020
Starting in 2020, the FMCSA, trucking employers, state driver licensing agencies, and law enforcement officials will have real-time access to truck driver drug and alcohol violation information

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has set out new rules that will require truck drivers to register with a federal database before they are allowed to change jobs.

Starting on January 6, 2020, drivers who wish to change jobs will be required to register with the FMCSA’s Commercial Driver’s License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse as part of their employment-related background check. Voluntary registration will begin in October 2019.

All CDL driver drug and alcohol test failures will be recorded in the Clearinghouse, including:

Report for duty/remain on duty for safety-sensitive function with alcohol concentration of 0.04 or greater or while using any prohibited drug
Alcohol use while performing, or within four hours of performing, a safety-sensitive function
Alcohol use within eight hours of a post-accident alcohol test
Test positive for use of specified drugs (This could include a post crash test, a pre-employment drug screening, or a random drug test)
Refusing to submit to a required alcohol or drug test

How about we drug test lawyers first. Enough is enough.

You can go to the dr and get anti psychotics just fine and dandy But smoking a plant is so evil. I can’t wait for self driving trucks to take this bull shit over already.

  3. They already have a database for physicals too! Now it's your responsibility, every time you renew your physical to register that as well, or risk having your license downgraded! It just goes on and on! The regulations never end, and the pay always seems to lag behind the cost of living!?

  4. They are regulating the trucking industry down to being just another bs job instead of a independent driving career. The government is always screwing around with the best paid opportunities! RATES ARE SCREWED UP, ELD MANDATES, & TRYING TO LIMIT US TO 65MPH.

  5. If you're a drug or alcohol addict, get a new job. It's as simple as that. People can play with their paranoid fantasies and jerk off as much as they want, but this is obviously about keeping assholes off the road and if you're one of the assholes, hey, get fucking clean.

  6. Let me start with truck drivers are drug tested every one to two years. Department of Transportation (DOT) physical examination must be conducted by a licensed "medical examiner" listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry. A DOT physical exam which includes a drug and alcohol test and is valid for up to 24 months. The driver must provide and carry the medical examiner's certificate at all time. If I understand correctly, this is an attempt to keep our roads safe. Great! Lets start requiring all drivers to register with a federal database before they are allowed to obtain or renew their driver's license.

  7. Making a law for drug testing is unconstitutional. Why you may ask. In America we have the presumption of being innocent tell proven guilty. Making a law that I must pass a drug test is in essence saying I am guilty of using drugs tell I prove that I haven't. Also, let's say you are using drugs, now you are being forced to self incriminate. Again violating your rights. Now with all that being said if a company what's to have a policy that all of there employee's get drug tested, they have every right to do so. I'm in favor of drug testing, just not it being mandated by the government.

  8. So basically….. if you are a good person, you should have nothing to worry about. This has been coming for a while. Technology is everywhere. I have no concerns as I don't do drugs. Drink only at home. And have no past offenses.

  11. Until truck drivers have someone to help bond them together, and said drivers are willing, this is going to get literally George Orwell level ladies and gents. No, I’m not speaking about a union either, but if everyone just continues to act like lone wolfs, bitch and moan, unwilling or (unable) to listen and learn from others, then the abuse will continue until moral improves.

  12. Its all about control who works. But its to find out who does most drugs to violation an csa score. Its all about controlling are jobs. Thats all private info. It gives cops to pull us over more for random drug test on the spot. This as a abuse by the constitution act to throw us in jail if it gives false reading. They can tamper with it. I disagree big time.
