Phoney excuses for road testing

I was going to write and research a post on the phoney excuses given by the Clark Government for the imposition of roadside drug testing, but Lindsay Mitchell has already done the job. Go read. As she concludes:
The evidence of drug-use causing accidents isn't compelling.
And check out her other writing; she's been producing good stuff recently.


  1. The idea that one can have a blood test forced upon them due to the size of their pupils scares the crap out of me.

    (I am scared shitless of needles)

  2. As I said on my blog the initial tests prove nothing. People could fail them without taking drugs or alcohol.


1. Commenters are welcome and invited.
2. All comments are moderated. Off-topic grandstanding, spam, and gibberish will be ignored. Tu quoque will be moderated.
3. Read the post before you comment. Challenge facts, but don't simply ignore them.
4. Use a name. If it's important enough to say, it's important enough to put a name to.
5. Above all: Act with honour. Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
