Driver Impairment

Driver Impairment

There are several reasons why the problem of impaired drivers and an ability to operate a motor vehicle safely should be foremost in the mind of all those who use the roads from law enforcement to the single vehicle operator.

With an ever increasing number of vehicles on our roads and a real lack of sustained enforcement of traffic regulations, the standard of driving nationwide is a cause for concern.

Impaired drivers (and in this instance we should include, drink, drugs, driver fatigue and general driver incompetence) adds a further burden to our already stretched Police Road Policing Units.

This year Blueknight will be offering a number of training courses on these very subjects. In particular drug impaired driving is the keystone on which Blueknight and its trainers are predicated.

Our most important NEW course will be the International Drug Drive Recognition Course (IDDR). Based upon the original police drug drive instructors course, written in the first instance by Blueknight’s CEO, Stephen Collier, it is an enhancement to that training which will include such subjects as driver fatigue and the older driver.

Over the coming months we will be introducing the following training.

  1. Drug Drive Recognition course (for police officers/staff).

  2. Alcohol and Driving – Back to basics – what you really should know.
