Campaigner calls for drugs test use
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.
