The police are on the look out now more than ever and aside from just the erratic driving behaviour, know all the signs to spot a drug driver.
Taking drugs will impair driving skills. Driving whilst under the influence of drugs is extremely dangerous and can affect driving in numerous ways. It is also illegal.
The penalties for drug driving are the same as drink driving.
You will receive:
- A minimum 12-month driving ban
- A criminal record
- A fine of up to £5000 or up to 6 months in prison or both.

Using the latest in video advertising technology, this message is being delivered on the ground through video advertising vans in strategic locations, designed to grab attention, and help promote the message of the risks and dangers involved in the use of drugs when driving.
