    Senators propose federal funding for training and equipment to help police identify drugged drivers

    Sens. Charles Schumer of New York and Mark Pryor of Arkansas proposed that federal funding in a pending transportation funding bill be used for research and to train police. They said police have no equipment and few have training in identifying drugged drivers, who donít show the same outward signs of intoxication as drunken drivers do, such as slurred speech.

    A good idea. Just about every single officer in California has "11550" training which works. Yet Washington hardly has anyone. Only WSP who seem to lazy to use it. I've been called out to do evals for the sheriffs office because the state won't respond

    If the state is unresponsive just imagine how much fun it'll be to get a federal program changed when it's done wrong.
