Roadside tests and a zero tolerance approach have seen the number of arrests for drug-driving increase by more than 600% in some police force areas - but how are the roadside tests actually carried out?

Brilliant! This must happen everywhere!
Not enough information, though! Does that test include prescription drugs?
i had heard that cars will have mechanisms that will not start if you have alcohol or drugs in your system.
i look forward to the day when every car has that setup.

Thanx Ray
