Samenvatting The availability of new technology that can provide immediate and accurate tests for illegal drugs offers the opportunity for the police to enforce drugs and driving legislation. This paper describes a study carried out to evaluate the feasibility of such testing. Three areas were studied: a) the extent to which potentially impairing drugs are found in drivers failing to pass a roadside sobriety test, b) the field evaluation of on-site drug testing devices to determine the most effective and c) the possibility of integrating the technology with current police procedures. The study involved the use of urine specimens from 300 driving-under-the-influence suspects placed under arrest in Florida.
