In the past decade Drug-Impaired Driving fatalities have proportionately increased. While the science on the relationship between drug-use, impairment and crash risk is not as clear-cut as for Alcohol-Impaired Driving, many fatally injured drivers in road crashes have one or more drugs in their system. In this section, research on this topic is made available.
“I know, thanks to TIRF’s research and training, that I have the tools to better educate new recruits, veteran members, the public, and the justice system on the whys and hows of dangerous driving behaviours. I highly recommend all police officers and justices read the TIRF research and attend information sessions if they have the opportunity.”
