Commercial Drivers Creating a zero tolerance approach prohibiting commercial drivers from having the presence of either alcohol and/or drugs in their system, as detected by a federally approved screening device.Wait. Wasn’t there always some kind of law on the books that commercial drivers had to be stone sober? Nope. They currently just have to be regular sober. Like the rest of us who aren’t driving with a G1, G2, M1, M2, or are 21 years of age or under. Who knew?The headlines are trumpeting the coming changes relating to marijuana use, and how police will be detecting and charging those who drive under the influence. Forget all the sky-is-falling alarmists; people have been using dope and driving as long as they’ve been using alcohol and hitting the road. Cops know it, and have been looking for all manner of impairment, always. They didn’t always have the tools they needed to push charges, and this proposed legislation will help that.But the proposed changes regarding commercial drivers is sliding under the radar. This is huge. But I’d go one step farther: it should apply to all drivers driving for a commercial purpose, too. Like cabbies and Uber drivers and pizza delivery people. I asked Ministry of Transportation spokesman Bob Nichols what the proposed changes were actually targeting.RELATED Trending Videos Trending in Canada COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS ‹ Previous Next › Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 School children take part in the 12th annual First Riders event at Northlands, in Edmonton.

Talk about burying the lead.Queen’s Park has proposed new rules and regulations for Ontario surrounding the impending Canadian legalization of pot. Stiffer fines, better detection (look for drugalylzers, tested last year in several parts of Canada and used in many other countries) and more licence suspensions.

Hearing about a drunk school bus driver is not an everyday occurrence, but it happens, like here, and here and here. Come to think of it, once is too often. The new legislation would affect those commercial drivers of large vehicles, but most commercial hauling companies have an in-house statute already regarding blood alcohol levels. It varies in different places, but in most western countries, it’s a variation of the requirements faced by airline pilots. Some states institute their own BAC level for rig drivers beginning at .02, for instance, instead of .05 for the general population. Many restrict alcohol consumption within 24 hours of a shift. The trucking industry takes it seriously, but it was news to me that government legislation is only now looking at formalizing this in Ontario for these operators.A commercial driver’s licence (CDL) covers vehicles such as heavy rigs, school buses and dump trucks; taxis, Ubers and pizza delivery drivers can get along fine with just a G licence. But once you cross into the realm driving for any commercial purpose, rules should be more stringent. Anyone driving for a designated commercial purpose, whether they’re hauling goods or schoolchildren or drunk partygoers, should be legally required to have a zero alcohol and drug level in their system. last_img read more
