    Опубликовано: 2024-06-14 09:30:11

    New rules for testing drivers for alcohol and drug intoxication have been introduced in Ukraine. The government has approved changes related to the procedure for checking vehicle drivers, aimed at strengthening control and road safety.

    The representative of the Cabinet of Ministers in the Verkhovna Rada, Taras Melnychuk, informed about these innovations. According to him, changes have been made to the Procedure for sending drivers of vehicles for examination in order to detect the state of alcohol, drug or other intoxication, as well as being under the influence of drugs that can reduce attention and reaction speed.

    One of the key changes is that a driver's examination can now be carried out at any time of the day in health facilities. For this, special technical means will be used that meet the requirements of the legislation on metrology and metrological activity. Such tools include testers for the content of alcohol and narcotics in the body.

    Melnychuk emphasized that the new rules also provide for the use of tests for the presence of psychotropic substances in the driver's blood. This means that even the smallest traces of drugs will be detected and recorded, which will ensure maximum accuracy and objectivity of the test results.

    If the results of the drug or alcohol test are positive, laboratory confirmation of the presence of these substances in the driver's body will be mandatory. This innovation aims to provide a more reliable evidence base for further legal procedures.

    Changes to the driver testing procedure are aimed at improving road safety and reducing the number of traffic accidents caused by drunk drivers. These measures aim to create stricter conditions for those who risk the lives of other road users.
