Drug and Drive

A new roadside test being used by the Police means if you drug drive you’re more likely to be caught and since the new law introduced last year – you’re also more likely to be convicted.

It is an offence to drive with certain drugs above a specified level in your blood. Seventeen medicines and illegal drugs are covered by the law, including cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine. The limits for all illegal drugs are extremely low.

Taking even a very small amount of an illegal drug could put you over the limit. The Police can now check how much you’ve taken using a roadside drug screening device or test your ability to drive using a field impairment assessment.

A drug drive conviction will have a serious effect on your life including a criminal record and a minimum 12 month driving ban and either a heavy fine, 6 months prison sentence or both.

So THINK! Don’t take drugs and drive.
