Businesses should do themselves a favor going into the new year by always being ready for an audit by the Department of Transportation. The results of the past year’s violation data indicate that of every 100 carriers who get audited, less than 5 passes without a violation. The top 4 violations of 2021 include 1. Allowing a driver to operate with a suspected/revoked CDL, 2. and 3. Failing to implement an alcohol and/or drug testing program (or random testing program), and 4. Allowing a driver with more than one CDL to drive a CMV. Other areas of non-compliance include using an unqualified driver, employing a driver who was disqualified from holding a CDL, and not keeping inquiries into the driver’s employment record in the driver qualification file.
