Is it illegal to drink and then enter your truck and start a 10 hr break

by Tim breuer

My safety manager accused me and my codriver of drinking and then sleeping it off in the semi, when he finally confronted us about it, I offered to take a piss and breathalyzer test right then and there.


I was the only one present for this conversation, and I have no video proof of this, should I be worried about my CDL or dac(?) and if so what should I do to protect myself legally?

I'm not a trucker, but if you're in a private vehicle with a high blood-alcohol content and have possession of the keys, I believe you are illegal, even if the vehicle is pulled off the road. I imagine the same holds true for truck drivers, but I don't know for sure.

Not Illegal. My Question Is What Would Leave Them To Believe Such A Thing. Did You Wake Up Late Or Miss An Appointment?

Has To Be A Reason Why They Believe Such A Thing.
