Cam­paigner calls for drugs test use

The Oban Times - - News -

A ROAD safety cam­paigner is push­ing for a drug driv­ing test to be used in Scot­land.

David Ste­wart, High­lands, Is­lands and Mo­ray MSP, says po­lice in Scot­land still have to utilise the Field Im­pair­ment Test (FIT), which in­cludes five ex­er­cises that aim to show if a driver is im­paired, and whether that im­pair­ment may be through drugs.

The test has been used in Eng­land and Wales and has been found to be suc­cess­ful.

Mr Ste­wart is now writ­ing to the govern­ment for clar­i­fi­ca­tion on drug test­ing lim­its and a timescale as to when other mea­sures might be in­tro­duced.
