Q. Why are you running a campaign and what is its aim?

Posted by & filed under .

The latest figures show that approximately 1 in 10 deaths on Scottish roads involve drivers who are over the legal limit. The risk of being involved in an accident increases rapidly when alcohol and/or drugs are consumed. The campaign aims to highlight the risks and consequences of driving under the influence of drink or drugs.

Q. Is there a drug driving limit?

Not at the moment but it is anticipated there will be next year. However, the police have a series of tests that can indicate if you are impaired through drugs and the penalties are exactly the same as they are for drink drivers.
