Preventing drug drivers from reoffending
The government is calling for evidence on ways to prevent drug drivers from reoffending after PACTS research revealed that nearly half of drug driving offences (44%) are committed by a reoffender. It seeks information specifically on a High Risk Offender Scheme, medical cannabis and whether a convicted drug-driver should have to complete a rehabilitation course before resuming driving. Responses by 28 June.
