Think Drug Driving in the Eyes

The Department for Transport in the UK has launched a new advertising campaign tackling drug driving. The campaign informs users that police are able to tell that they’ve been using cannabis, cocaine or ecstasy based on the state of their eyes. The campaign, online at Think, includes posters, a television and online commercial, a screensaver and a pair of festival glasses.
