from Freight Waves

Positive drug tests and drug test refusals increased 8 percent and 9.3 percent, respectively, in September, after dropping slightly in August, according to the most recent data compiled by the federal Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse. The latest monthly data, released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), also revealed that the number of drivers now in "prohibited status" — meaning they have at least one drug or alcohol violation and are still in the return-to-duty process — reached 34,156 as of Oct. 1. Roughly 78 percent (26,590) of those drivers, however, have not yet started the RTD process. more
