This is like the 4th or 5th article with in a year involving DWI Truckers. I fear it will only escalate.
Just the 4th or 5th article you've possibly in a year read yet there is at least ONE drunk Commercial Truck Driver causing mayhem EVERY DAY just in this Country and that is merely for the ones drinking alcohol.
There are those not drinking alcohol, just getting well tuned up on prescription as well illegally (streets) obtained pharmaceutical drugs.
There are those "drivers" as well that perform combinations (experiments).
These are well documented FACTS.
Some Drivers are merely FATIGUED which present conditions akin to alcohol and/or other drug usages.
HOW MANY truck stops have you visited that SELL BEER as well LIQUOR??
HOW MANY truck stops have you visited that have Saloons, Bars, Cocktail Lounges NEARBY and as well ON the property?
HOW MANY TIMES have you seen "drivers" carrying BEER (usually in 6 and 12 packs) to their trucks then driving away?
There are songs from the 30's, 40's, 50's and on related to Drinking Booze and Trucking, when, somehow, drinking and trucking appeared to be humorous, while it is glaringly NOT.
BE AWARE (BEWARE) that ANY Driver you see could well be "tuned up" on something.
