MADD Canada is throwing its support behind mandatory alcohol screening in Canada.
The measure is contained in legislation now before the Senate.
Bill C-46 identifies driving limits for cannabis, new roadside testing devices for police and mandatory alcohol screening.
MADD Chief Executive Officer Andrew Murie predicts the proposed new rules would reduce impairment-related crash deaths and injuries by 20%.
Murie says the current method of selected screening doesn't catch everyone.
He notes that mandatory screening is done for safety reasons, noting a form of it is already being accepted by the public at our airports.
