Young drivers admit to driving under the influence of drugs

26 August 2009

New research from DFT shows that one in 10 young male drivers admit to driving after taking illegal drugs.

In response to this a new Think campaign has been launched to support police enforcement.

The new £2.3M campaign highlights that police can detect drug drivers - and that anyone convicted will face the same tough penalties as a drink driver.
