Any prospective driver that tests positive for the presence of illegal drugs will not be hired. Any current driver that tests positive for the presence of illegal drugs or alcohol will immediately be terminated from employment with the District.
There is no tolerance for an illegal drug. For the purposes of this policy, a driver tests positive for alcohol when that driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .04 or above. If a driver tests between .02 and .039 BAC, that driver will not be allowed to operate a commercial vehicle for the District for twenty-four (24) hours from the time of the test. A driver that twice tests between .02 and .039 BAC in a year’s time will be treated as the equivalent of testing positive for alcohol. (10-23-01)
