Radio NZ News 8 January 2017Family First Comment: “..drug driving was a silent killer on the country’s roads because a lot more drivers involved in fatal crashes were found to have drugs in their system, than people thought.”But dont dope supporters say dope never killed anyone?!#saynopetodopeIt’s our silent killer, now the Automobile Association says there needs to be random roadside testing for drugs, similar to alcohol.The AA’s spokesperson, Dylan Thomsen, said drug driving was a silent killer on the country’s roads because a lot more drivers involved in fatal crashes were found to have drugs in their system, than people thought.Blood samples taken from 1046 drivers killed in fatal crashes between 2004 and 2009 found that 1 in 3 had some type of drug in their system, mostly cannabis.Mr Thomsen said most people were aware of the dangers of drink driving and alcohol but there were a lot of people who didn’t see drugs, including cannabis, in the same way.The Ministry of Health estimates that about 130,000 New Zealanders use cannabis at least once a week and 1 in 3 cannabis users admitted driving stoned in the 2015 cannabis use survey.He said many drove without realising the risks involved and some even thought they were better drivers when they were stoned, taking risks they otherwise wouldn’t.“The risks are that it slows down your reactions, it makes you more likely to miss seeing something.“You can become extremely focussed on one thing and not be taking in some of that wider information. So you might be really focussed on controlling your speed, and you aren’t seeing that vehicle that’s coming from the side.”READ MORE: http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/321967/aa-wants-random-drug-driver-testsKeep up with family issues in NZ.
