UK: 1.2M BRITS A YEAR ADMIT DRIVING WHILE STONED

MORE than a million Brits drug-drive because they are certain police will not catch them.

Two-thirds of drugged-up motorists get behind the wheel under the effects of cocaine, ecstasy and cannabis.

The other third are smashed on substances including magic mushrooms and speed.

Britain's drug-driving plague was highlighted last year when singer George Michael, 47, was jailed. He was sent to prison for eight weeks for being stoned on cannabis and prescription pills when he ploughed his Range Rover into a north London shop.

But a study by Direct Line showed most druggie motorists, like Michael, do not think illegal substances affect their driving. And many claim it is easy to outwit police.

Direct Line insurance director Andy Goldby said: "Drug-driving is as irresponsible as drink-driving. Drugs severely impair the ability of drivers. Thousands are now admitting they have been involved in an accident while high."

Julie Cooper, 41, whose daughter Louise, 23, was killed in Essex by pot-smoking trucker Lee Baker in 2008, said: "Anyone who thinks drugs are harmless should look at their kids and imagine them bleeding to death the way Louise did."

Yeah I'm sure it has everything to do with smoking pot, not that truckers have to stay awake for days on end while driving literal TONS of steel 70 mph down the road.
