Rapid test to combat drug driving

Police will adopt the Rapid Oral Fluid Test from February 19 as a preliminary on-site drug test for drivers involved in traffic accidents and offences or suspected of drug driving.   Authorised police officers will use the instrument to detect whether a driver’s oral fluid contains specified drugs, including heroin, ketamine, MDMA, cannabis, cocaine and methamphetamine.    Drivers who fail the test will be required to provide blood or urine samples for further tests.   Police Traffic Branch Headquarters Acting Senior Superintendent Ng Hoi-wai told the media this afternoon that the instrument is highly accurate and more efficient compared with traditional testing methods.   Mr Ng said: “My personal estimation for the Drug Influence Recognition Observation by the roadside in a traditional method will take our police officers about half an hour, but the current device will take a maximum of eight to 10 minutes.   “I think the number one improvement is the timing, another one is the objectivity.”   Refusing a Rapid Oral Fluid Test or driving under the influence of drugs is a criminal offence. Drivers will be liable to a maximum fine of $25,000, three years’ jail and disqualification from driving.
