Pennsylvania Trucking Group Pushing for Statewide Database On Drivers

April 13, 2006

The Pennsylvania Motor Truck Assoc. is pushing for a statewide database that would compile employer records on drivers’ drug test results as a way to help weed out problem truckers, according to an Associated Press report.Currently, traffic violations and criminal convictions can be found on drivers’ public records, but trucking companies say they often have not way to track whether drivers had any positive drug or alcohol tests at their previous jobs, according to the report.Some states, including Washington, Oregon, North Carolina and Texas, have databases of positive drug tests by commercial drivers, while other states such as Virginia have discussed the idea.
