Drivers of approved used cars have urged the government to do more to crack down on motorists who operate their vehicles while under the influence of drugs.

According to a poll conducted by price comparison site, 70 per cent of motorists do not believe the authorities are doing enough to combat this menace.

As a result, 71 per cent want the government to do more to fight the problem.

In addition, 37 per cent of the motorists polled by the firm believe that people driving under the influence of drugs are less likely to be caught than those under the influence of alcohol, with 55 per cent saying the chances were the same.

Mike Hoban, chief marketing officer for, is now urging the government to take notice of the public's concerns.

"The Government has a responsibility to let drivers know that the penalties are severe and that drug-drivers are a danger to themselves and a danger to others," he said.
