For this second episode, James Luckhurst is joined by David Davies of the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS), Ean Lewin of D.Tec International – manufacturers of the widely-used Drugwipe detection system – and by Max Fogdell, Head of the Driving Licences and Examinations Unit at Finland’s Transport and Communications Agency Traficom. They consider the road safety implications of a significant fall in the number of breath tests conducted by police officers, as well as the disturbing fact that some police forces – with better procedures, contracts and training – are convicting ten times more drug drivers than others. There’s also a chance to find out how alcohol interlocks work for repeat drink drive offenders in Finland, where they have been part of the system for more than 15 years.
