Tackling the menace of drug driving

Plans to make it easier to prosecute those who drive under the influence of illegal drugs have been published by Roads Minister Stephen Hammond.

In January 2012 the government announced that it would be introducing a new offence of driving with a specific controlled drug in the body above the specified limit for that drug.

A consultation published today (9 July 2013) puts forward proposals on the drugs to be included in the legislation and the limits to be specified.
