As part of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operators must periodically take breath alcohol tests.
Compressed air can be very helpful for powering pneumatic tools and for transferring nonflammable liquids. You can even use it for cleaning equipment if you follow strict safety procedures. But compressed air is also dangerous.
