Policies for Improved Enforcement
NHTSA will work to explore and leverage innovative approaches to prevent driving under the influence of drugs through improved tools for law enforcement.
Going forward, NHTSA will:
Explore the potential to develop an allocation model to suggest an optimal number of drug recognition experts to support a geographic area and its population;
Continue to support the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) at its annual training conference on drugs, alcohol and impaired driving in August; and
Continue its efforts to develop a field test for law enforcement, to assist officers in detecting and recognizing signs of cannabis impairment.
