so this guy gets all drugged up and goes to work and drives his garbage truck into the back of this girl who was obeying all traffic laws and he only gets this. What BS, the company he drives for should get sued too, and this guy needs the chair.

This is my cousin but I still think he should have took his muscle relaxers when he got off work. Being any kind of Trucking job is very stressful and sometimes your back says fuck you I am not moving. I see he was in the wrong. But look on the other hand the street department fired him because his prescriptions wasn't on his application and found out they lied!!!!

He shouldnt have been working period if he was taking drugs. There is no excuse. He lied because he knew they wouldnt have hired his butt. Disgusting to say the least..

In response to your comment, have you ever been prescribed any meds for pain etc & told to return to work? Work comp isn't going to pay you for a day off of work. This day & age most can't afford to lose a day or two of pay. I'm not saying it was ok for him to be driving but are you going to pay his wages for his days missed? I thought not!

This goes with those that smoke pot, if you get high Friday night you are not going to still be high a week from then but if you have an accident it will show that you have it in your bloodstream. Nevertheless you will be found guilty. That is wrong.

the issue is not the driver, its the employer who hired him. they are responsible for hiring someone with a drug problem. cheap labor, and wages create saftey hazards. a good paying company would have completed a thru background check and drug test before hiring. its the employer's fault, they are the criminal.
