Drug Driving

A new drug drive law will come into force in England and Wales on 2nd March 2015. The new law will make it illegal to drive with a specific controlled drug in the body above the accepted limit for that drug

This legislation will provide a more effective tool for dealing with the danger posed by drug drivers. It will also help reduce the wasted time, expense and effort involved for the police and the courts when prosecutions fail because of the difficulty of proving that a driver is impaired by a particular drug under current legislation.
