Abstract

Mental disorders and psychotropic drugs may impair the ability to drive. In Poland there are no legal regulations concerning either the good practice of physicians treating such disorders, or problems associated with taking psychotropic drugs. The paper presents regulations currently in force in the United Kingdom that might serve as a frame of reference for the development of relevant rules in Poland.
