An Alabama truck driver recently was sentenced after pleading guilty to transporting undeclared hazardous waste, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation Inspector General's Office. Wayne Parker was sentenced Dec. 2 in U.S. District Court in Cullman, Ala., to five months home detention, followed by 43 months probation, and a $3,000 fine, DOT-OIG said.
The investigation was initiated as a result of a port check conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, according to DOT-OIG; Parker was inspected at a weight station and was found to be in possession of three separate driver logs, which showed that he omitted recording a trip when he was transporting hazardous waste.
