The Government Accountability Office, a government watchdog, has found about 4%, or 563,000 U.S. truck and bus driving license holders are receiving full federal disability benefits while still holding their commercial driver’s license. Drivers’ disabilities include hearing, vision, and seizure problems. Some are so severe, license holders would generally be denied certification to drive trucks and buses. Yet, these truck drivers remain on the road endangering the safety of everyone else traveling on Connecticut and the nation’s roads and highways.
