Motion text

That this House expresses concern about the number of lives lost in road traffic crashes that may have been caused by people driving whilst under the influences of legal and illegal drugs; recognises that in law driving while unfit through drugs is an offence; notes that Transport Research Laboratory tests demonstrated a significant increase between the 1980s and 1990s in the percentage of people testing positive for illegal drugs who have been involved in fatal collisions; welcomes the BMA's launch of its web resources on research that has been undertaken and is currently in progress; and calls on the Government to ensure speedier and more specific and co-ordinated research in order to establish appropriate drug testing devices and to undertake a campaign to educate the public that the side-effects of illegal and certain prescribed drugs can affect their ability to drive.
