• TRANSPORT GROUPS CAN STILL MANDATE DRUG TESTS — SOTTO

    0

    Sen. Vicente Sotto 3rd on Sunday challenged the leaders of different transport organizations to subject their members to mandatory drug testing imposed by the Land Transportation Office, despite the decision to remove drug testing on driver’s license applicants. This was in response to the transport leaders’ plan to file a temporary restraining order before the Supreme Court against the implementation of a provision in the Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act that effectively removes the mandatory drug test for applicants of driver’s licenses. Sotto, the principal author of the law, explained that the reason why proponents of the law decided to repeal the mandatory drug test clause in the Dangerous Drug Act of 2002 is because the requirement has been proven ineffective.
