This year's RSA/Garda Síochána Christmas road safety campaign focuses on the prevention of driving under the influence of intoxicants, and extends roadside testing for alcohol to include impairment testing for drug driving. The introduction of  Garda Roadside Impairment Testing  follows the introduction of section 11 of the Road Traffic Act 2014, which I commenced on 27th November.

The Road Safety Authority has produced a television led awareness campaign to inform the public of the introduction of roadside impairment testing and the campaign will also be supported by radio, online and cinema advertising.
