USING FMCSA ALCOHOL TESTING IN A NEW MEXICO TRUCKING ACCIDENT CASE

New Mexico Trucking Accident Case: How Mandatory FMCSA Alcohol Testing Can Help

Large commercial trucks like 18 wheelers, big rigs, semi tractor trailers, and other box trucks are dangerous enough by themselves. But when the truck driver uses alcohol before or during his or her shift, large trucks can now become a deadly instrument. This is particularly true on fast moving highways and interstates like I-40, I-25, and I-10 in New Mexico. This is why FMCSA regulations require post-accident alcohol testing in certain circumstances, including when there is a wrongful death or serious personal injuries that require immediate medical attention.
