Dangers of Amphetamine Abuse
Truckers have been undergoing more intense job expectations as the United States has seen economic growth. Following World War II, truckers were often expected to driver farther, longer, and in less time than before. As a result, amphetamines entered into the trucking scene as a means to keep drivers awake over long hauls. The effects of amphetamine use include:
- Lowered feelings of hunger or tiredness
- Increased heart rate
- A boost of social extroversion
In the Reagan era, federal law shifted to new policing procedures that randomly monitored truckers and Department of Transportation employees alike. Through urine tests, drug traces could be found in a trucker's system, leading to subsequent legal action.
DUI charges are devastating for anyone undergoing the process, but are especially detrimental to truckers. If you are facing the wrath of the law, you could consult a strong law team to help formulate your legal defense.
