Although new roadside drugalysers have the potential to make the streets safer for bikers, new rules must go hand in hand with awareness campaigns.

According to a spokeswoman for the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM), one in ten young male drivers have driven under the influence of cannabis and 370,000 have driven under the influence of class A drugs.

"For some years a slightly higher proportion of drivers have admitted to driving under the influence of Class A drugs," she said.

However, the spokeswoman added: "We believe that the proven ability of impairment testing should not be forgotten in any rush to provide a technological solution to the drug driving issue."

She claimed that it is a constant battle to get the message across to road users about changes to driving legislation.

For this reason, it is vital that awareness campaigns back up the new law but also highlight existing concerns over drink driving and driving the morning after.
