Trucking industry gets tougher on CDL holders who drink or drug

The DUI laws applicable to those with a commercial driver license are tougher than those with a license for a non-commercial automobile. In fact, truckers in Kentucky must abide by a law with zero tolerance when it comes to any amount of alcohol or controlled substance.

Truck Accidents

Many Kentucky motorists may find themselves sharing the road with large trucks. To this end, knowing the proper steps when driving around trucks is crucial to make safety a top priority. While you can’t always prevent an accident from happening, you can reduce the chances of a serious injury from occurring.

A brief look at truck crash statistics

Every day, people are involved in traffic accidents across the country. From pedestrian accidents to motorcycle collisions, these incidents take a variety of forms. Tragically, crashes that involve a large truck are especially likely to result in the loss of life or a significant injury in Louisville, Kentucky, and all over the U.S. Between the massive size of semi trucks and the length of time that is often required to a truck driver to slow down, the outcome of a large truck wreck is often devastating.

Reviewing the legal BAC limit for truck drivers

The dangers posed by drivers traveling along the Dixie Highway are well-documented. Imagine how much more dangerous a driver may become if he or she is driving while under the influence of alcohol. Combine that with the vehicle that he or she is operating being a semi-truck or tractor-trailer, and the potential for a devastating accident can be very high.
