    I have been studying how to pass these drug tests and keep getting around it. I have known drivers in the past go to the testers,have a friend put his hurine in a seal bag,tape it to his body to keep it warm, go in and pass it everytime. then I have thoght what a reall smart guy would do and what I would do to catch these guys. they need to drop their pants and have the dr chk and make sure he or she is hiding the hurine, This part is really a loophole, The driver gets a buddys picture put on his license or his company has a person to do this,all the plant has to do is show up to drug test and bring that fake picture and license in with him,sign that mans' name and date it and off he goes,passed the drug test for that drugee again, NOW DO THIS,instead of the examiner just looking at this Id,photo copy it,keep it on file in case it is invetigated and testing site can prove they asked and received it,PUT THE PIC ID ON ALL COPIES ON THE FORMS INCLUDING THE ONE THAT DRIVER HAS TO CARRY ON HIS PERSON, and then send a copy to the state and feds,they can run the id and pic and if they don't match that driver is caught red handed and lose his cdl for life and i would go futher and ban a driver for life in any vehicle,including a motorcycle. there are fake lic all over and very easy to copy and make yourself,then laminate. College kids all got em,why can't drivers use them for drug tests,the examiners only want to see a copy that matches that person taking a test. I really believe I"m onto something here. Lets stop it now,if its happening,just been thinking,Whats your thoughts.If your in position to tell OOIDA<your state or fed reps,maybe the time for this. It will make drivers and companies more responsible and get these drug users off the road. Thks for reading,just thinking about you and me out there,that have NO USE FOR DRUGEES OR THEIR USE OF ANY OF IT>

    IS there any stats avail' for an average on drivers who use drugs... and this might sound foolish but I know it used to be a major problem, is still that bad out here. IDK, I don't use nor anyone I know. Although I have been seeing a lot of trucks on there sides, and in the tree's lately.

    That's a great idea, however implementing it would be the difficult part. The states would say its the testing facility's responsibility, they would say the state needs to help them out, etc,etc until , taadaa, nothing happens, the drugee keeps the job.

    Thanks folks for the input,5 yrs from now we'll hear they have fixed it like I suggested. Just like overweight trucks,they could stop that tomorrow but want the money instead. I do think there are alot doing smoke and meth, and coke out here everyday. Would be a good idea to pee test guys when they have a dot ck at state scales,only takes a few minutes,i would be proud to pass and always have. They want to slow us down,but can't stop the drugees,go figure!

    I haven't touched anything since jan 2001 (my son was born) and then it was only very casual. And it was only a little weed in my days of running around. I prefer the beer. BUD LIGHT RULES.......

    I 2nd that beer is better(off duty ofcourse), but testing at the scales should be done and can't be that far fetched that it can't be done. Is'nt there some sort of strip they can dab in a cup of urine that will show certine colors if coke, meth, booze or what ever is present? If not lets start it. It would even work for routine traffic stops, 4 wheels or 18+.

    Do you really want diesel bears to have any more power over us.

    BTW, If they suspect you of being impaired,
    they will call the police(state or local) and they will come right out and perform their duty.

    I say let them do their jobs and leave the turf alone, I just hate when a local or a state cop tries to read my logbooks, I get to log more time as on duty not driving.

    Well you have a point there, it was a begining idea. But as for the log books Locals shouldent be looking unless they have been trained on how to read them, some will try ( it's not hard ) but if you ask if they were ever trained 9 out 10 I think they will hand it back to you. Well that's around here from what I've found. If anyone knows different please let me know.... before I get myself in trouble...
