79 times drug drive limit

79 times drug drive limit

21st Aug 2017

A driver has been recently prosecuted for being 79 times over the legal drug driving limit.

In Feb 2015 a new swab test alongside new legislation for 17 illegal prescription drugs was introduced. Previously police had to be able to prove a driver was impaired due to taking illegal drugs.

This new legislation enables police to test and detect for specifc use of drugs.

In it's first year of introduction over 8,000 arrests were made. So is drug driving on the rise or is detection now easier.

So is your policy fit for purpose in relation to drug driving?
