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.
“The work we are doing with TIRF and the Action2Zero learning centre they developed with funding provided by Desjardins, may have saved our non-profit. We have been waiting for a comprehensive way to gather intel around community road safety so we can mobilize and support communities to develop a comprehensive road traffic safety plan. TIRF is a trusted road safety research institute and having their expertise support our organization has been invaluable, we hope to continue working directly with TIRF and Desjardins to deploy the Action2Zero assessment in more communities across Alberta and beyond.”
