The FMCSA's  primary mission is to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.  To carry out this safety mandate, FMCSA recognized the need for a drug and alcohol free transportation industry, and in 1991 passed the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act, requiring DOT agencies to implement drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive transportation employees.  Every employer shall comply with these requirements, and every driver shall submit to random alcohol and controlled substance testing as required.
