A Horizon Scan of Technology for In-Vehicle Driver Remediation of Drug-Impaired Drivers

This project sought to identify drug detection technologies currently available in the marketplace that are capable of immediate drug detection and driving prevention for use in Ontario’s remedial program for convicted drug-impaired drivers. This report summarizes the work completed and provides an overview of the context and a global view of the technological solutions and the intentions of other jurisdictions to mitigate the harms of DUID in an evolving world.
