Samenvatting There is increasing concern across the EU Member States about the role drug use may play in traffic accidents. This literature review addresses inter alia the relationship between different patterns of drug consumption, impaired driving and traffic accidents. In addition drug testing procedures and associated legislation regarding drug-impaired driving in the different EU Member States are described and the issues raised by such testing reviewed.
