[ISP] Commercial Driver Placed Out-of-Service
Start Date: 1/28/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/28/2014
Entry Description

Dearborn County: Yesterday morning a commercial driver was placed out-of-service for illegally consuming alcoholic beverages while on duty. At approximately 9:15 a.m. Indiana State Police Motor Carrier Inspector, Kim Hill was checking trucks at the West Harrison Weigh Station on I-74 at the Indiana/Ohio state line when a 2006 Volvo semi crossed the scale. MCI Hill asked the driver to exit the scale and bring all his paperwork into the scale house for a routine check. As the driver, 42 year old Willie Peterson from Pamplico, SC, was speaking with MCI Hill she detected an odor of alcoholic beverages on his breath. A check of Peterson’s BAC with a Portable Breath Test device detected the presence of alcohol in his system. Although Peterson wasn’t legally “under the influence” of alcohol, the mere presence of alcohol in his system while operating a commercial vehicle was enough to issue him a traffic ticket for violating the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and by statute he was placed out-of-service for 24 hours. Under Indiana Law, a violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations is a Class B Infraction. Although there is no jail time associated with an infraction, a Class B Infraction carries a maximum fine of $1,000.
