Owner-Operator’s First Alcohol and Drug Clearinghouse Query Deadline Approaching The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse rule requires employers to monitor employees’ drug and alcohol violations.

CMV drivers who use a mobile phone while driving can only use a hands-free phone located in close proximity. The FMCSA’S restrictions are based on research showing that the odds of being involved in a safety-critical event, such as a crash, near-crash or unintentional lane deviation, are six times greater for CMV drivers who engage in dialing a mobile phone while driving than for those who do not. Dialing drivers took their eyes off the forward roadway for an average of 3.8 seconds. At 55 mph (or 80.7 feet per second), this equates to a driver traveling 306 feet, the approximate length of a football field, without looking at the roadway.
