DRIVING on pills

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Last friday dispite deciding never to do it i drove my friends home from a club whilest pilled up. I found driving on E to be just like playing play station. There was no fear of crashing at all and frankly I was so alert I think i drove much better than normal. But at 2.30 in the morning and with 4 people in the back if Id run into any police cars I would have without any doubt been stopped. Does anyone know what powers the police have? I would have easily passed a breath test but one look at my pupils and they would have known I was on extacy. Also does anyone know if driving on pills is even dangerouse? Where I live is a very heafty taxi fair from the nearest clubs and I dont know anywhere within walking distance to crash.

Anyone got any advise?

    I can't believe u even have to ask if it's dangerous.

    I was commenting on how sensible people seemed, despite the young ages on this. Your perceptions and functioning are altered...u may feel more in control but u don't know if that's real or not. And every e is different. Please everyone - look after yourselves and others on the road. U have the energy 2 walk...USE IT!

    I'm not trying 2 nag, but this is really important.

    Driving while pilled up is def. a bad idea. Despite this I quite often do it round the village I live in or back from events.

    Although confident when driving pilled up I often lose sight of the road. I can't always make out bends or I see bends that arn't there. Another common trip out I often have is seeing road go straight up towards the sky or seeing nothing but a black hole where the roas should be.

    One of my mates once, was driving us back from an event about 25 miles from where we lived. I knew he was fucked but didn't realise to what extent until he snuggled back into his seat closed is eyes and put his head back. The rest of us freaked out and managed to get him to pull over before he crashed. In the end I ended up driving his car back!

    Not worth doing really and please don't believe that you were a better driver on 'em cos you blatently aint.

    ok thanx, dont worrie about nagging somtimes people need to be told they are being stupid. I hadnt planned to do it but we got out of the club ten miles from the nearest place to crash (i mean sleep) and I kinda didnt have any choice. no one had booked a taxi and I had 5 people desperate to get home. If i could walk home believe me i would. My house is a good 20 miles away.

    This may seem like a rediculusly stupid question but is driving on pills illigal? And if so it would require a blood test to prove it and they can only force you to give a blood test with permision from the courts I think.

    Dont drive whilst on pills its one of the most stupid things you could do. I know as I have done it and am not proud of it. I know exzactly what ur saying in that you dont care if you crash but what if you crash into another car, I know the person driving that car wont feel the same as you. Ur not just endangering yourself ur doing it to other road users that are unfortunate enough to be anywhere near you if you do crash.

    Yes it is illegal to drive whilst on drugs and they can take a blood test if they want as it can be pretty obvious when ur nutted out ur tree. As far as I know they can also find out if you have from your nail clippings as they can contain the chemicals or up to 6 months that is also including weed. SO just dont do it its not smart and not cool just get a taxi or get someone else to drive that dosent take them or drink. Take care and keep it real.

    done it myself, not advisable but sometimes there is no option rather than as you say a hefty taxi fare. as far as i know there are no tests as such at the mo to determine wether your off your face. if i drive i find a carpark a bit of distance from the club, then i can have a walk after to calm do and focus on driving, also not many people will be round you when start the car up. i only drive if i know where i'm going, in a new town no way. i've done it, but wouldn't recomend it.

    heh, dont try it please.

    Just last friday I went to a club and got pilled up. The 2 pills i took seemed to be pretty weak if you ask me. It took a long time for me to feel something and when i did it wasnt as great as i had hoped.

    Anyway despite their weakness.. after the club closed down for the night i went out to my car and started to drive home... Well this club closed at 4:00am which is kinda early so i decided to drive around and enjoy my roll a little more. Well i drove around for a while and did just fine untill i was on the last road that leads to my house.

    All of the sudden im in the grass, so i jerk the wheel to the left and im spinin around in the road. THANK GOD there was no cops or anyone around for that matter. It was real dead out, i only saw 5 or 6 cars in the 3 hours i was driving around lol.

    I don't remember dozing off, all i remember is jerking the wheel and spinning around in the road. It scared me to fucking death believe me.

    I wont ever tell this to anyone that i know in real life because they will probably KILL ME! But please use my experience to your advantage.

    It definately scared me enough to NEVER DO IT AGAIN. I feel like im living on overtime or something. But I know I am alright now and that I will not be that fucking stupid again. hehehe

    peace

    I seem to remember seeing posters about the police bringing in "portable drug testers" which, like breathalisers, could test for the presence of various drugs. They needed specific ones for every drug though so I don't think they took off. I'm pretty sure that at the moment they can take you back to the station for a blood test if they have reason to suspect you. Hope this helps.

    I dont think any research has been done as to if its dangerous or not so people saying it is are just stating their opinion. To be honest though most police would take an Im tired excuse for fucked eyes, but if they really wanted to they could take you for a blood test which would reveal all and you'd be fucked.

    Infact a survey was done by an independant org. a couple of years ago that was reported in detail in Mixmag magazine. All the drivers came out worse on drugs such as E, Puff, Speed, Alcohol and Acid. The only one that actually improved driving was coke but it is still dangerous cos it apparently it makes you over confident when driving.

    The police would definately not accept a 'Im tired excuse'. When people are pilled up it dilates their eyes, in other words it makes them look like two piss holes in the snow. You might get dilated eyes or gurn when your tired but most normal people don't! :d

    the stupidest thing i have ever done was drive on E!! first off yea im paying atention and driving o.k. but yea ya start looking at the lights and the taillight and headlights and soon enough ur headin rite for em!! yeah then u see shit that kinda isnt there at tims and if u do see a cop or someone along the line of getting you in trouble u start to panic like all hell and u can tell in your driving. for your eyes get colored contacts they help with the noticable dialation. that is if u really need to drive otherwise id advise walking~public tansportation can be very scary.... trust!! :P

    Gawd, I don't drive, but I can't beleive anyone would attempt to do it whilst e'd up. I know at the time you think you are dead alert, but have you never had the chats with your mates the next day and there's loads of shit you can't remember?

    Scary thought.

    it was on the news a couple of days ago that 2 young lads had been to gatecrasher and decided to drive home even though they'd munched a load of pills. anyway the passenger was asleep and the other one must have nodded off whilst driving and they ended up in a fatal crash - the passenger died and the driver got a lifetime ban and 2 yrs in prison.
    so may that be a lesson to you all

    awww man,

    two lovedups? We're gonna get mixed up all the time....
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    LOVEDUP r u male or female?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm a laydee!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    dunno about u being a laydee lovedup! LOL
    female yeah, but I think our pint drinking skills rule us out of being classed as laydees.
    And driving while pilled up is stupid. You might think you're fine at the time but I wouldn't get in a car with any of my mates if they where driving on E. I'd rather walk.
