Post Accident Drug Testing and Documentation

Under federal regulation 49 C.F.R. §382.303, drivers of commercial motor vehicles are required to undergo drug ("controlled substance") and alcohol testing following an accident if certain circumstances are involved. Importantly, §382.303 also imposes strict time limits within which drug/alcohol testing must occur, and even prevents testing if the allotted time has passed. Lastly, if alcohol/drug tests were required, but not completed, §382.303 requires documentation of the circumstances that prevented such testing.
