Attorney Steven Gursten on Michigan roadside drug testing

Michigan Lawyers Weekly examines pilot program for roadside drug testing, Steven Gursten weighs in as auto accident lawyers raise concern

Michigan State Police are moving toward launching a roadside drug testing pilot program later this year, but the effort is already raising questions from attorneys. Michigan Lawyers Weekly outlined the program, and interviewed attorney Steven Gursten of Michigan Auto Law for his thoughts on how such a program could affect drivers throughout the state. Gursten told Lawyers Weekly:

“To the extent that roadside drug testing of drivers who are suspected of driving while drug-impaired helps to reduce and/or bring an end to drug-impaired driving, then I’m all for it.”

He also “expressed concern that the program is not broad enough as it appears to target impairment stemming from controlled substances such as cocaine or marijuana — not alcohol or prescription drugs.”
