Samenvatting New legislation introduced in December 2000 allowed Victoria Police to use Standard Field Sobriety Test procedures to determine the likelihood of an apparently impaired driver being under the influence of drugs. These methods have been very successful in identifying drivers whose driving has been impaired due to the use of drugs. Almost half of the drug-impaired driving suspects were apprehended after involvement in a minor crash.The objectives of this study were to examine the relationship between the signs observed by Police, relevant on-road events and the drug use of drivers as determined by subsequent blood analysis, and to compare this to the type and quantities of drug found in driver fatalities.
