Federal law now mandates that drivers required to have a Commercial Drivers
License (CDL) must submit to drug and alcohol testing. This includes drivers of such
vehicles as refuse trucks, street sweepers, large dump trucks and busses. And your
local government is responsible for the testing, reporting and record keeping!. The
law went into effect 1/1/95 for employers with 50 or more CDL license holders; it went
into effect 1/1/96 for all other local governments, even those with only one driver!
Those who fail to comply are subject to fines of up to $10,000 per infraction, and the
Feds are now gearing up to conduct audits. The regulations require not only testing,
but also new record keeping and reporting requirements, and adoption of alcohol and
controlled substance misuse programs.

The complex and detailed regulations contained in the Omnibus Transportation
Employee Testing Act of 1991 as amended require five tests for both alcohol and
drugs: 1) pre-employment, 2) post-accident, 3) random, 4) reasonable suspicion, and
5) Return to duty and follow-up.

LGI's publication, Drug and Alcohol Testing for Local Government CDL Drivers: a
Compliance Manual, is the most helpful publication yet developed on the new law.
This resource will explain the new regulations in plain and simple language, answer
your questions, and give you valuable help in achieving your testing and reporting
requirements. Also included is a PC disk which contains model drug testing policies
and procedures and other helpful compliance information. You can't afford to be
without your copy of this important manual.
