Roadside Impairment Testing

More than 20% of passengers and drivers killed on our roads recently were not wearing seatbelts and this number has been increasing, is very worrying.

After years of great progress, road deaths have been up both last year and this and already, at the end of this month, seven higher than this time in 2013.

New measures to enforce road safety are needed

However the return of things like the one-leg stand and finger-to-nose test should make for some pretty zany sights. But it is progress even if it is like going back to the days when suspected drunk-drivers had to walk in a straight line. The roads are getting much busier, people are driving faster, less carefully and more aggressively.

Alex Todd Brand Manager at Its4women commented "A survey released last month from the Government’s THINK! campaign shows 18-24-year-olds are seven times more likely to think drinking and driving is acceptable. And research from the Automobile Association (AA) found that women are kicking the drink-drive habit more slowly than men."
