PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Many people may not be aware that it is illegal to drive while taking certain medication.

If caught doing so then you may risk not only being banned from driving, but also up to 14 years of imprisonment. If your actions lead to the death of someone then you can be charged under Section 3A of the Road Traffic Act 1988 for causing death by careless driving when under the influence of drink or drugs. Being pulled over for driving with drugs in your system can also cause higher insurance costs as well as disciplinary action from employers if you have a certain job.

. If you’re taking them and not sure if you should drive, you should talk to your doctor, pharmacist or healthcare professional. Driving whilst taking prescription and over the counter medication can be very dangerous and can affect your driving in a number of ways, similar to illegal drug use. Bilal Hussain, a serious injury lawyer at Irwin Mitchell said: "You can only drive legally after taking these drugs if you’ve been prescribed them and followed advice on how to take them by a healthcare professional or they are not causing you to be unfit to drive even if you’re above the specified limits." He added: "The police can stop you and make you do a ‘field impairment assessment’ if they think you’re on drugs. This is a series of tests, for example asking you to walk in a straight line. If they think you’re unfit to drive because of taking drugs, you’ll be arrested and will have to take a blood or urine test at a police station."
