Transportation Minister Robert Vessey, whose department organized the summit, said driving while impaired by drugs is a growing problem across the country and the province will be looking at ways to curb it.
That could include highway safety officers getting training to identify people who are impaired so they could help police to deal with the issue, Vessey said.
"We have to get things around that."
Vessey joined Justice Minister Janice Sherry and representatives from MADD Canada, addictions services, Island police forces and several government departments for a one-day summit in Charlottetown Wednesday.
The summit was meant to look at solutions the Transportation Department can implement to reduce drunk driving in P.E.I.
It appears to have done just that.
Vessey said the province will be releasing a report based on what was discussed during the summit.
"There will be changes coming in the legislation through the Highway Traffic Act," he said.
The provincial government already took steps in the fall to beef up the Highway Traffic Act when it comes to drunk driving, including mandatory use of the ignition interlock for all offenders.
Vessey said there were a lot of different topics discussed Wednesday, including possibly requiring vehicles to have a licence plate on the front, which they currently don't in P.E.I.
The possibility of requiring repeat offenders to use a coloured licence plate was previously suggested and Vessey said it came up again during the summit.
"That's definitely still on the table for repeat offenders."
Vessey said everyone at the summit agreed to meet again in six months to continue the discussions.
Andrew Murie, MADD Canada's CEO, flew in for the summit and said the participants had a great discussion about the issues surrounding impaired driving.
Murie said the people involved seemed willing to listen, including the two cabinet ministers who part of the discussion and he felt there will be legislative and non-legislative changes made as a result.
"I think at the end of the day everybody wins because there will be less deaths and injuries due to impaired driving on Prince Edward Island," he said.
The province's push to get people to call 911 to report drunk drivers was one the examples Murie gave of something the summit addressed and he said there was agreement it should be expanded.
In P.E.I. it is illegal to talk on a cellphone while driving, but the province has made an exception for people who call 911 to report drunk drivers.
Vessey also said the 911 program was a reoccurring theme in many discussions during the summit and many thought the province could do a better job of promoting it through signage and education.
"I think that's a tool that we have that we may not be utilizing as much as we could," he said.
Murie said it was unusual to see the type of involvement from cabinet ministers who took part in the summit and he left feeling things were going to happen.
"It just wasn't another meeting," he said.
