8 March 2017 – Preventing Drug Driving in Europe, European Parliament, Brussels

  • March 8, 2017

Lunch debate, Members’ Salon, European Parliament, 8 March 2017, 12:30 – 14:00

This event was kindly hosted by Dieter-Lebrecht Koch MEP.

The knowledge of the road safety toll from driving under the influence of psychoactive drugs is growing. The prevalence of illicit drugs amongst killed drivers has been estimated at around 8% in some European countries including Spain and Sweden.

New ways of tackling drug driving are being developed and implemented across Europe. New enforcement strategies and improved detection technologies, combined with more effective penalties and rehabilitation courses, are all helping to create a more comprehensive approach to drug driving in Europe.
