Case NOTES: Medicine drive risk.

Byline: Greg Tindle

UP to 25 per cent of the UK's 28 million regular drivers could be risking their own and other road users' lives by using their cars even when they know medicines they are taking may impair their driving ability, according to new research by the RAC.

Three out of every 10 drivers, never -or only sometimes -read the labelling on their prescription or over-the-counter medicines before deciding whether or not to get behind the wheel. The new findings are part of the RAC Report on Motoring 2003: Drink, Drugs and Driving.
