Samenvatting In this consultation we are looking for comments on a proposed limit for amphetamine use while driving. This discussion follows the original Drug driving: proposed regulations consultation which discussed the preferred policy option of making it an offence to drive over specified limits for 17 controlled drugs. In ‘Drug driving: proposed regulations’ a zero tolerance approach was suggested for 8 drugs most associated with illegal use and a road safety risk approach for 8 drugs most associated with medical uses. No limit was originally suggested for amphetamine as it has both significant medical and illicit use and, as a consequence, we sought views on what a suitable limit might be instead. Those views have now been considered and a suitable amphetamine limit is now proposed. After reviewing responses, regulations containing final proposals will need to be approved by Parliament before they become law. (Author/publisher)
