Be fair Woody, I am sure it will come as some solace to all those killed by offenders between the 12th and 24th January, and to their families of course.

Just read the new law article for drivers to submit to the Narcotest,and was just wondering .

A. Does this apply to non narcotic perscribed medication,via a doctor who deems one fit to drive .

B. Does this machine testing device discriminate between narcotics and other drugs that the user may have to take for physical health reasons.

In the press release there seems no mention of this,maybe the article should outline this and give more clarity to many persons who may be interested.

I feel the program is a great idea and hope this prevents unnecessary loss of more lives in road accidents,but still feel that this is just one of many causes of accidents .
