    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    ...so you thought the best course of action was to register on an anonymous Internet chat forum rather than relay your concerns to your local management team or police department...?

    Really Dave? You've been here long enough to know a troll when you see one.

    But they're prescriptions and in this great country of Murcia if the driver has scripts he can drive high as a kite all day. Meanwhile your after work pot smoker or weekend coke user is a criminal.

    How would you know exactly what the driver is taking anyway? It's medical information.

    It's one of those things that unless involved in a very serious accident and tested nobody will really know. Imho even typical anti anxiety/anti depressants can affect your driving, yet many drivers are on xanex or other crap. A decent dosage of that makes you a zombie. There is a driver in my hub who has went through personal issues, every morning he looks like a zombie and I as well as management probably know why.

    In my group of drivers I see guys antsy in morning pcm or looking out of it. If you have any idea of side effects if prescriptions you can tell exactly what people are on. Many drivers also tell others, so I doubt this is a troll

    Driving is serious especially with a 10,000lb vehicle and I treat it as so, many don't. I personally can't even take Benadryl while on duty as it affects me at work in ways I don't like

    medical information is protected by HIPAA if you have are healthcare provider, does not affect the general public, My concern is kids.....many think its ok....until someone gets hurt then the finger pointing at the ones that know and why didn't they expose them....the truck is a lethal weapon

    People develop a huge tolerance to these after years of taking them and give them a false sense of being ok driving until something happens
