Govt to clamp down on drug driving
09 May 2012
The government has announced that it is to take a harder stance on the problem of drug driving as new legislation is due to be released.
As part of the impending Queen's Speech, ministers will ensure that driving while under the influence of drugs is made an offence, moving away from the current regulation which means police have to demonstrate that drugs have impaired a person's driving skills.
According to figures by the Campaign Against Drinking and Driving group, in 2008, 880 people were killed on the road by drivers that may have been under the influence of drink or drugs and the government wants to reduce this figure even further.
Road safety minister Mike Penning said: "We have an enviable record on road safety in this country and I want to keep it that way. This measure will help to rid our roads of the irresponsible minority who risk the lives of innocent motorists and pedestrians."
