Crashes Caused by Drivers Impaired by Drugs
Both legal and illegal drugs can affect a driver’s ability to safely
operate their vehicle. According to 2010 study on fatal crashes by the
National Institute on Drug Abuse, 46.5% of drivers tested positive for
prescription drugs, almost 37% had used marijuana, and almost 10% used cocaine.
Marijuana can slow reaction time, impair the judgment of time and distance,
and decreased motor coordination. Drivers who have used methamphetamine
or cocaine can demonstrate aggressiveness and recklessness behind the
wheel. Even prescription bills, such as Vicodin and Xanax, can cause drowsiness
