Drug Driving Roadside Test
The UK government brought new legislation into effect on 2nd March 2015 which allows the police to perform roadside drug testing using a roadside oral saliva drug testing kits or 'drugalyser' called Drugwipe.
Initially, the police will be using the roadside tests to screen for Cannabis and Cocaine. If they suspect other drugs have been used they may take the driver to the police station for further tests. A positive result on the roadside drug test will result in the driver being taken to the police station for a blood test.
The drugs that may be tested for under the new law include Cannabis, Cocaine, Ecstasy and Ketamine & Benzodiazepines, Methadone, Morphine or opiates.
The following prescription drugs will also be covered under the new rules:
Benzodiazepines including Clonazepam, Diazepam, Flunitrazepam (also known as Rohypnol), Lorazepam, Oxazepam, and Temazepam.
