    Random alcohol testing must be administered while the driver is performing safety-sensitive functions, just before the driver is to perform such functions, or just after the driver has ceased performing such functions. There is no similar requirement on testing for controlled substances. Drug tests may be performed at any time the driver is working for the employer.34

    Random alcohol and drug testing must be unannounced and spread throughout the calendar year.35 The testing program must ensure that a driver never knows that testing is finished for the year.36 Each driver who is selected for random alcohol or drug testing must immediately proceed to the test site.

    Please note, . Drug tests may be performed at any time the driver is working for the employer.34
    To me, this statement means any time the driver is on duty, not while he is on the way to the beach or home watching t.v. Only when he is "on duty"

    I didn't find the law but I did read an article saying if the company has reason to believe the driver is under the influence or suspicion if you will.they can call him in for a drug test while off duty otherwise they cannot.

    One company gave me a random more then any other driver.reason I think they did is because they knew I would pass.judging from how the other drivers looked and acted it didn't take no rocket scientist to figure out why I was most or always the chosen one.
