What is drug driving?

Drug driving is driving under the influence of illicit drugs and/or the abuse of prescription drugs. Drug driving not only puts the driver at risk but also passengers and others who share the road. Even a small amount of certain drugs can seriously affect a driver’s motor skills, balance and co-ordination, perception, attention, reaction time, and judgment on the roads. Check out this information leaflet for Frequently Asked Questions on how preliminary drug testing works.
