It is an offence to drive or attempt to drive while unfit through drugs, and the law does not distinguish between illegal drugs and medicines. A person who, when driving or attempting to drive, or in charge of, a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place, is unfit to drive through drink or drugs is guilty of an offence.
This law exists because a driver who is impaired through drugs is at risk of having an accident. Insurance will be affected by a conviction or an accident linked to drugs and medicines in the same way as it is for drink-driving.
