Drug Drive Testing with Fiona Hutton: Friday the 17th of May

Drug driving is an issue that the Aotearoa is yet to get a grasp on. While drug impairment resulted in seventy-one deaths on our roads last year, it has been acknowledged by both the minister of police & minister of transportation that there is no “clear linear relationship” between the presence of a drug and potential impairment. This does not only concern currently illegal drugs, it includes prescription medication, as there is no line drawn in the sand as to how we regulate driving under any of these substances, & with the referendum on cannabis legalisation approaching, its time to speak up fast. So a public consultation into safety testing for drug driving has been launched by the government, hoping to conclude on the 28th of June to get a general consensus on the public opinion. I spoke with Fiona Hutton, Senior Lecturer at the School of Social and Cultural Studies at Victoria university of Wellington, to discuss this issue around testing drug driving.
