Preventing Drug Driving in Europe: PACTS and ETSC launch new report

ETSC has launched their latest report on Preventing Drug Driving In Europe at an event in the European Parliament. The report was written by PACTS and features a number of references to the recent changes to UK drug driving laws as an example of an effective and robust approach to tackling drug driving. The report looks at countermeasures from across Europe and makes a number of recommendations for action at the national and European level.

Commenting on the report, Antonio Avenoso, Executive Director of ETSC said:

“Drug driving destroys thousands of lives every year. It’s a complex problem, but one that must nevertheless be tackled. Technology can help, but enforcement, rehabilitation and research are also vital to understanding and tackling this evolving challenge. Governments can learn from each other, and the EU also has a role to play in promoting common standards, better data collection and research.”

The report builds on the in-depth DRUID (Driving Under the Influence of Drugs) project and is aimed at policy makers in the UK and wider Europe. The full report, which can be downloaded below, looks at the current drug driving situation in Europe and a range of policy measures for national and EU action. It also considers the recent changes to UK drug driving.
