Former drug user: My ‘reckless’ driving was so dangerous

There were almost 8,000 arrests last year for drug driving in England and Wales, figures obtained by BBC Radio 5 live have suggested.

The statistics from 35 of the 43 forces showed that 7,796 people were arrested between March 2015 and April 2016.

New legislation was brought in covering legal driving limits for 17 illegal and prescription drugs in March last year.

One man, who wished to remain anonymous, explained how the influence of drugs had affected his driving capabilities in the past.
