Druid Acronym Gains Momentum

The Druid acronym is gaining momentum. Here is the latest:

The Integrated Project DRUID (Driving under the Influence of Drugs, Alcohol and Medicines) deals with the scourge of drink-driving and is going to find answers to questions concerning the use of drugs or medicines that affect people’s ability to drive safely. DRUID will bring together the most experienced organisations and researchers throughout Europe, involving more than 20 European countries. The aim is to gain new insights to the real degree of impairment caused by psychoactive drugs and their actual impact on road safety. All in all this Integrated Project will fill the gaps of knowledge and provide a solid base to generate harmonised, EU-wide regulations for driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs and medicine.
