FOURTEEN drug drivers were detected on Albury roads last week.
A two-day operation across the city on Thursday and Friday tested 72 drivers for drugs with 14 returning alleged positive tests, police said.
Drivers were also tested for alcohol in their system, with six out of 163 drivers returning a positive reading.
Superintendent Stuart Smith said it was concerning that drivers took the risk of driving under the influence.
"Driving while affected by drugs and alcohol is as serious as it gets. The warnings are out there but some drivers don’t seem to care about the risks," Supt Smith said.
“Loss of concentration and impaired motor skills mean you can’t react to oncoming traffic or obstacles in your way.
Any driver under the influence when behind the wheel is basically deciding to risk their life and the lives of others."
