The article discusses post-accident testing proposed by the Federal Highway Administration and which is now on hold pending announcement of a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals. To decide in favor of it, the court must overturn a U.S. District Court's finding that the Department of Transportation failed to justify testing by proving that there's widespread drug use among truckers. The impact of such testing regulations on drivers and employers is discussed. The arguments for and against the rule are aired. The constitutional issues that may be raised are noted. The complex logistics invloved in its compliance are also discussed.
