Drugs and Their Effect on Driving Performance
MetadataShow full item record
This report reviews the literature on the association of drug use and accidents. Research indicates widespread use of psychotropic drugs with tentative evidence to indicate their use may impair driving performance. The effects of marijuana and other hallucinogens on traffic safety and driving performance is also reviewed. The unpredictable effects of these drugs, plus their effects in combination with alcohol, indicate a need for further investigations in this area.
