‘I was humiliated by drug driving arrest because of my medication’ - driver hits out at new laws

A motorist who failed one of the country's first roadside drug driving tests has hit out at the new laws after he claims his medication caused him to fail the test.

Alan Croghan spoke to Joe Duffy on RTÉ's Liveline today and outlined how he came to be tested and what happened after he failed.

On Good Friday, at around 11pm, he said he was stopped by gardai and was tested for alcohol and drugs on the N11

He tested positive for benzodiazepines and opiates and was arrested on suspicion of drug-driving, before being brought to Bray garda station.
