Recently revealed data shows that in 2010 three percent of large truck drivers involved in fatal crashes had detectable amounts of alcohol in their blood, according to the Trucker News Service.
Just two percent of those were over the legal driving limit of .08. Truck drivers had the lowest of any category, including cars, light trucks and motorcycles. Nearly one in three highway deaths for all vehicles involved alcohol impairment.
