Time's up for drug drivers in new Motor Accident Commission campaign via KWP! Adelaide

A new integrated campaign via KWP! Advertising for the Motor Accident Commission of South Australia (MAC), aims to reduce the incidence of drug driving on South Australian roads.

The campaign is appearing on television, radio, online, out-of-home and on MAC's network of roadside billboards throughout regional South Australia.

MAC General Manager of Road Safety, Michael Cornish says the frequency of fatal crashes where drivers and riders are testing positive to illegal drugs is on the rise. Says Cornish, "Around 24% of those killed in road crashes over the last two years returned a positive test. Drug driver detection rates are also on the rise with positive results being returned in around 9% of tests compared with 2.5% in 2008."

MAC is the voice of road safety in South Australia and while they do not condone the use of illegal drugs, they see a compelling need to provide information around the length of time drugs stay in your system and can be detected by police drug driving tests.

"We're certainly not saying it's okay to take drugs but people are taking drugs and we just want them to stay off the road. For their sake and the sake of all road users," adds Cornish.

Says KWP! Account Director, Tristan Glover: "By educating the public about how long drugs stay in the system, we can hopefully stop people from drug driving and prevent drug related fatalities on our roads."
