The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse is providing more than just a great way to help identify and keep disqualified CDL holders off our highways. It’s also providing a treasure trove of data offering insights on important aspects of the trucking industry. In June 2020, FMCSA began publishing Monthly Clearinghouse summary reports containing CDL driver violation data that clearly identify the drug of choice among drivers, industry hiring trends, the effectiveness of testing and more.

The Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse Three Months In & More Regulatory Concerns
The FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse is now in full effect, and more than 8,000 violations have been flagged as a result.
And yet, confusion remains: Of the 8,000 drivers who have failed a drug test since the database was launched, some could remain behind the wheel. Since there’s no mechanism for notifying fleets when a driver fails a test and most fleets haven’t run their annual queries, it’s unknown how many drivers will continue to drive until caught. What should carriers do?
