Drug Driving Tests
The new roadside drug test has now been in force since March 2015 and is proving an effective tool for the UK police , allowing the UK police to perfrom drugalyser tests at the roadside. Previously the police had to perform a 'field test ' to judge whether a driver was impaired by drugs and then if the driver failed the field test they would be taken to the police station for drug testing. The police now have access to roadside saliva drug testing kits and are be able to perform an instant drug test if they suspect a motorist is under the influence of drugs.
Saliva drug testing kits

The move is an effort by the French government to reduce the number of deaths & accidents on french roads attributable to drink driving and to make the public more aware of the levels of alcohol. The French drink driving limit is 0.05% BAc , lower than the UK's limit which is 0.08% BAC.
Remember Scotland now has a lower drink drive limit
The Scottish parliament lowered the drink drive limit to 0.05% BAC on December 5th 2014 bringing it in line with much of the rest of Europe. The drink driving limit for Scotland is 0.05% BAC , lower than the limit in England, Wales & Northern Ireland which remain 0.08% BAC. The UK police force & driving organisations are keen for the UK government to do the same in the rest of the UK.
