High driving to be stopped

A SPOKESPERSON for the Portuguese driving institution, Direcção-Geral de Viação (DGV), has announced that it is issuing a kit that can detect whether drivers are under the influence of any illicit drugs. According to the spokesperson, the device is simple to use – when drivers are pulled over by local authorities, they will be asked to put an instrument under their tongue or on their skin. The saliva or sweat on the device will immediately detect whether any illegal substances, such as heroin, ecstasy, hashish and cocaine, have been taken. The device will be given out to PSP and GNR officers all over the country shortly.
