    You can buy an APU and run it just like the reefer and you know it.

    When was the last time you were orderd to take an on the spot blood test?

    Need a solution for this, purchase an APU for your rig.

    Not without a warrant.

    Most drivers allow officers to search their truck, because if they don't they know they will be held up until the officer gets a warrant or he decides to quit being a dick. It costs money to an independent trucker or could cost a company driver his job. It's easier just to let them look and be on your way. It's more convenient is completely different than "there is a legal requirement".
    Get pulled over by that DOT that works around Phoenix and Flagstaff and he will search for every fuel reciept and toll ticket to get you for a log book violation

    I work for an owner Operator that doesn't provide it instead I idle at 900 RPM because of the regen system. The owner does not care how much I idle

    because you let them. Not because it's a DOT requirement.

    As I have mentioned before I don't agree with those anymore than a checkpoint. People shouldn't have to prove their innocence.
    That being said, a blood test is a hell of a lot more invasive than a urine test. The point I was making is that this requirement is even above and beyond what is required of a CDL holder.

    Absolutely not. However you are complaining that you are treated less than a dog when a viable solution exists. It's your employer that doesn't give **** that you have to lay in the hot/cold truck to rest. They are too cheap to buy the proper equipment for you.
