TISPOL’S SEMINAR ON drink- and drug-driving took place in Bristol on 19 May. The event,which was chaired by TISPOL General Secretary Ruth Purdie, included presentations from police officers, policy makers and scientists from across Europe.

Ruth opened the seminar, with a straightforward message. “We still have many challenges in the field of drink-and drug-driving.
