Motorists should be warned of medication dangers

17th September 2010

A poll has shown that 10% of drivers were unaware of the consequences of driving while under medication.

And now, nurses have been urged to do more to warn patients on prescription drugs about the risks. Research carried out for road safety expert GEM Motoring Assist has shown that one in 10 people admit their ability to drive is impaired after taking medication and 3% of motorists say they have been involved in an accident or a near miss while under the influence of prescription or over-the-counter drugs.
