Sacramento DUI Defense Attorney – Commercial DUI
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) applies certain rules for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol to drivers with a Commercial Drivers License while driving a commercial motor vehicle. A commercial DUI is defined as having a blood alcohol concentration of .04 or greater. Police officers and the commercial driver’s employer are allowed to randomly test commercial drivers for drug or alcohol abuse before, during, or after driving a commercial vehicle. The state or local police may test a driver on suspicion of driving under the influence or following an accident.
Some states have a zero tolerance policy for drinking and driving.. Additionally, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require random drug tests for commercial drivers to test for marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, opiates, and phencyclidine. The time during which you could test positive for any of these drugs vary according to the drug but some can remain in your system for a significant period of time after use. A commercial drivers license may also be suspended upon conviction for violating such rules while driving a non-commercial vehicle.
