Steve Pratt is warning us that drastic action is needed to stem the tide of drug addled maniacs behind the wheels of cars on our roads.
The evidence points to a growing problem with drug driving across the entire country. No state or territory is safe from drug drivers
More people are taking drugs? More drug takers are driving? I’m at a loss as to how this can be a rising problem.
But as Steve’s solution is random testing of drivers for drugs, what it’s really about is unwarranted searches.
With Random Breath Testing for alcohol we bought a little safety at the expense of an essential liberty (to not have searches performed until there is positive reason to suspect us), but at least the actual drinking was not illegal, just the driving when drunk.
Anyway I’m sure the safety nazi’s will be thrilled to see liberties further eroded for a minute hypothecated statistical improvement in road safety.
