The Importance of Drug Recognition Evaluation (DRE)

Drug Recognition Evaluation (DRE) is an important tool used by law enforcement officers to help identify drug-impaired drivers. The DRE process involves a standardized 12-step evaluation that includes a series of physical, psychological, and clinical tests designed to identify the specific category or categories of drugs causing impairment.

The importance of DRE lies in its ability to provide law enforcement with a standardized and systematic method of evaluating drug impairment in drivers. This process allows officers to accurately identify drivers who are under the influence of drugs, which is essential for ensuring public safety on the roads.
