[ISP] Commercial Driver Placed Out-of-Service
Start Date: 3/21/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/21/2014
Entry Description
Dearborn County: A commercial driver was placed out-of-service due to having alcohol in his system while operating a commercial motor vehicle. According to ISP Motor Carrier Inspector Kim Hill, this morning at approximately 5:35 a.m. a semi tractor trailer operated by 52 year old Kent R. Jackson of Sparta, KY crossed the scales on I-74 at the West Harrison weigh station and was found to be overweight. He was asked to pull his truck around behind the scales then bring in his license, registration, and other documents as part of the standard protocol when such violations are detected. When Mr. Jackson entered the scale building and began conversing with MCI Hill she detected an odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath. A portable breath test indicated his BAC to be .03. While that level is relatively low and is not considered to render a driver “under the influence,” simply having a measurable amount of alcohol in the driver’s system is a violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and is a Class B Infraction. While this violation is only an infraction, no jail time is associated with the violation. However, the driver can be fined up to $1,000 and have his commercial driving privileges suspended for up to one year.
