C.H.P. drug recognition experts, certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will be on site to provide on the spot assessments of drivers suspected of drug use. The officers will also be equipped with hand-held breath testing devices which provide an accurate measurement of blood alcohol concentration of those suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol.
