Under the Road Safety (Alcohol and Drugs) Act 1970 (Tas), police officers have powers relating to drug and alcohol consumption in drivers. Since the introduction of random breath testing, a driver must take a breath test when stopped and asked to do so by a police officer. There are also powers for police officers to require a driver of a motor vehicle to undergo an oral fluid test to test for illicit drugs.
