Drug Driving Legislation:
Police have issued a timely reminder to motorists around the devastating consequences of drug-driving.
On 2 March 2015, the Government announced it is illegal to drive while over the specified limit of 17 legal and illegal drugs.
Now, on the third anniversary of the new law, officers are warning offenders that they are now far more likely to be caught and convicted.
In the 12 months leading up to the new legislation (2 March 2014 – 1 March 2015), a total of 62 drug-driving arrests were made in Sussex. Click here to read more.
