Truck Driver Drug Violations Rose In June

New information in the latest Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse Report could accelerate calls for federal approval of other testing methods, such as hair and oral fluid testing, according to one safety and compliance expert.
The June 2020 Monthly Summary Report, the second such report issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) since the clearinghouse went into effect in January, showed an uptick in queries in June. That’s a change in direction, as those numbers dropped in March, April and May, presumably because of the economic slowdown and freight recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
