Workshop will focus on drug driving and new law
Road Safety GB London is to deliver a drug driving awareness workshop for road safety professionals on the back of new drug driving legislation being introduced in early March.
The workshop will be held in central London on 16 April, and be led by Liam Watson from Drugs Training.com, an independent agency providing training for professional groups on a wide range of drug issues.
The workshop will cover topics including: the latest trends in drug use; the prevalence of ‘drug driving’ and the effects of drugs on driving; the new drug driving laws that come into force on 2 March 2015; how the police will be detecting illegal drugs; and issues relating to prescription drugs and the law
The programme will include presentations from the Metropolitan Police Service and Natasha and Michaela Groves, the mother and aunt of Lillian Groves who, since her death in 2010, have campaigned tirelessly to introduce ‘Lillian’s Law’ and roadside drug testing.
Carol Walker, administrator for Road Safety GB London Region, said: “Places are limited but we have some available for road safety practitioners outside London.
“We’ve timed the workshop to take place the day after Young Driver Focus 2015 which is being held in London on 15 April, to enable people from outside London to consider staying over and attending this workshop.”
The delegate fee for the workshop is £95 (no VAT). Contact Carol Walker for more details or to book to attend.
