New drug driving legislation
New rules about taking certain medication and driving have come into force in England and Wales
on 2nd March 2015. This additional legislation means that police can stop drivers and test blood levels of sixteen substances
composed of two lists including illicit drugs (e.g. cocaine) and general prescription drugs (e.g. morphine, temazepam, diazepam and methadone). The new rules will mean it will be an offence to be over the proposed limits for each drug when driving a vehicle.
