S5O-00897: Liz Smith (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 19 April 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what measures it is taking to tackle drug-driving.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 26 April 2017

On Friday last week, I announced that the Scottish Government would bring forward legislation by the end of 2017 that will introduce drug driving limits. This legislation, which if approved by Parliament will come into force in 2019, will set individual limits for different drug types and help make it easier for the police and prosecutors to hold irresponsible drivers to account and help improve road safety.
