Description

The Post-Gazette series "uncovered dangerous flaws in medical certification process for commerical truck and bus drivers that allows seriously ill drivers to get behind the wheel." Unfit truck and bus drivers can go from doctor to doctor until they are approved because of the lack to report failed physicals. However, "physicians report that trucking companies will pressure them to pass their drivers- or risk losing their business."
