Legislation driving under the influence of drugs and drugs changes with the amendment of the Road Safety Act passed by Congress and being debated in the Senate. On the one hand, states that the mere presence of drugs in the body (drug understand both illegal and legal) it is punishable with 6 points and 1,000 euros. Or not affect driving. So far this sanction was scheduled only for "driving under the influence of narcotics, psychotropics, stimulants and other substances of similar effects". The presence of drugs would be considered an administrative offense does not affect driving, if it would influence offense, as foreseen in the Penal Code.
But what about calls legal drugs that test positive in controls, such as benzodiazepines? The law does not differentiate with illegal. Only a small apostilla in paragraph 1 of Article 12 of the reform can help our defense if we are being treated. After banning the presence of drugs in the body when driving also states that "exclusion therefrom substances which are used under prescription and therapeutic purposes whenever the vehicle is able to use". That is, if you take any medication that can affect driving and if drug control test positive, you'd better get it prescribed by a doctor, because if not, do not you get rid of the fine.
The most common
What are the most common positive drugs? Benzodiazepines, antidepressants and antiepileptic drugs are most commonly found psychotropic drugs among drivers killed in accidents according to the National Institute of Toxicology. In most of the cases were combined with alcohol or other drugs to enhance its effect. But They are not the only ones that affect driving. And worse, are not the only ones who can give positive control. Many of them do not require a prescription unlike benzodiazepines or antidepressants. He tells us Motorists European partners, widely used drugs, analgesics and anti-inflammatories, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, gastric protectors such as ranitidine, various antihistamines (the latest just have side effects) or even syrups intended to alleviate the symptoms of colds or flu may give false positive, yes, in urine.
It is true that current devices for carrying drugs, Drug Test 5000 as currently used in drug tests by the Civil Guard are quite reliable. But if you you are sure not to have consumed more than medication, you do not have a doctor's prescription and give positive in drug control it is important for you to submit to contrast of a blood. It will be the ultimate test for exculparte.
