Govt finally unveils plan for roadside drug testing - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Govt finally unveils plan for roadside drug testing - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): "ACT Government has unveiled draft legislation to introduce roadside drug testing.
The Legislative Assembly last month gave in principle support to a similar bill put forward by the Liberals.
The Greens agreed to hold of debate on the bill until the Government's proposal was unveiled.
The Government has been reluctant to support roadside drug testing in the past but released a discussion paper on the issue in March.
It has now put forward its own proposal which Chief Minister Jon Stanhope says will allow police to detect illicit drugs using an oral fluid screening test.
'It also gives police the authority to request a driver to undergo a blood test if they have reasonable grounds to believe the driver is affected by a controlled drug that cannot be detected by the oral fluid screening test,' he said.
'People involved in road accidents will also be required to provide a blood sample for testing.'"
