The big drug testing news last year has beeen the new legislation that came into force across the UK in March 2015 , allowing the UK police to perfrom drugalyser tests at the roadside. Previously the police had to perform a 'field test ' to judge whether a driver was impaired by drugs and then if the driver failed the field test they would be taken to the police station for drug testing. The police now have access to roadside saliva drug testing kits and are be able to perform an instant drug test if they suspect a motorist is under the influence of drugs.
