On this site “drugged driving” – also called drug-impaired driving – has been discussed in various posts, including highlighting a recent study regarding such impaired driving in the May 7 post titled “‘Drugged Driving’ Report.”
There are many reasons why driving while impaired because of drug use is notable. As mentioned previously, there have been many recent Chicago-area accidents in which the driver has been under the influence of drugs. As well, the frequency of such accidents is notably high and has been increasing. As such, from a traffic safety perspective, such “drugged driving” has become a serious issue.
