Delay in drug driver checks

US-style roadside checks on suspected drug drivers won't start for another two months.

The measure has been put on hold until necessary extra legislation is passed in the Dail. Some 9,000 gardai also need to complete training for the roadside checks.

Meanwhile, the bill to cut the legal alcohol limit from 80mg to 50mg per 100ml of blood was published yesterday.
