With the demand for truck drivers at an all time high, a CDL certificate is an option for prison inmates looking for a fresh start.
After serving sentences for their crimes, inmates who are granted parole begin looking for work. Some prepare for post-prison employment by earning their CDL while behind bars.
The Houston Chronicle reports that a quarter of truckers who were faulted for accidents in Texas had prior criminal records. Over 14% had committed drug or alcohol offenses before their accidents, and over 10% were felons.
Let us know what you think in the comments below!! Do ex-con truckers deserve a second chance or are they a danger to others on the road??
