FMCSA Declares South Dakota Truck Driver to be an Imminent Hazard to Public Safety
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has declared South Dakota-licensed truck driver Clayton Virgil Hall to be an imminent hazard to public safety and has ordered him not to operate any commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in interstate commerce. Hall was served the federal order on March 27, 2019.
In January 2017, during a random USDOT controlled substance test, Hall, a commercial driver’s license (CDL) holder, tested positive for amphetamines, a Schedule II controlled substance for which he did not have a valid prescription. Federal safety regulations prohibit a CMV driver from being on-duty and possessing or being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
