An Alabama truck driver recently was charged and pled guilty to undeclared transportation of hazardous waste, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of the Inspector General. Wayne Parker’s case was heard July 17 in U.S. District Court in Cullman, Ala. Sentencing has not been scheduled.

A port check operation inspection at a weigh station found Parker to be in possession of three separate driver logs, DOT-OIG said; the driver logs showed that Parker omitted recording a trip wherein he was transporting hazardous waste.
