Why Drug DOT Testing is Important
Proper DOT drug testing and compliance are some of the most important aspects of running a trucking fleet. Without proper DOT drug testing, your company could be at risk of major fines or even be shut down entirely. The worst-case scenario is a driver being under the influence of drugs leading to an accident, which will automatically trigger an investigation.
