Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID)

Did drugs contribute to or cause an incident?  Could drugs explain driving or driver behaviour?

IFC offers expertise in the evaluation, investigation and determination of drug involvement in:

  • Driving under the influence cases: Did drugs cause or contribute to poor driving or a crash?
  • Are drug effects consistent with observations? Is the individual’s slurred speech due to their pain medication, alcohol or neither?
  • Could the Oral Fluid test be inaccurate?
  • Effects of prescription drugs alone and in combination with alcohol: Could the stress medication make the effects of alcohol worse?
  • Predicting the effects of drugs based on test results or witness statements: Could this amount of drug have had that effect?
  • Was the testing performed correctly?
  • Are the results consistent with declared medication?

IFC are happy to address any of these questions or any others you may have and routinely provide advice and reports addressing all issues relating to Driving Under the Influence of Drugs.

A quick phone call or brief consultation can help you determine the role of drugs in your matter.
