Drug driving.

Having spent many years riding in and around London, it is not to uncommon to be behind a car that has a strong smell of ‘interesting’ tobacco (for a diplomatic way of putting it). Some times getting in front of it is the only way not to become under the influence of the stuff.
The law has changed and a campaign is being rolled out to inform drivers and riders of the new law and the penalty.
The biggest difference that may catch people out is it, not only effects illegal drugs, but it will also effects some over the counter as well as some prescribed medication. Should you have any concerns consult with your pharmacist or the prescribing Doctor.
Here are the adverts that have been released to help people understand the consequences of drug driving.
