    My truck is down and in the shop likely for a few days from now while I'm typing. Is it okay if I have a few tonight? Care to share similar situations? Thanks

    of course it is. legally, but maybe not with your company

    as long as you have 8 hrs off ,before driving.

    Just don't be out there telling your business. Truckers drink all the time.

    Not illegal but it might be against company policy. Just take out the trash before leaving the room or before anyone comes to clean up. I’ve heard of hotel people reporting to companies, but that was during orientation/ CDL school.

    I'm drinking beer as I stumbled upon this thread. Off for the next 14 hours. This buds for you.
