Drug-Impaired Driving: A Guide for States, 2017 Update

Drug-Impaired Driving Report

To confront the complex and evolving issue of drugged driving, GHSA and the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (Responsibility.org) have produced a comprehensive update of their 2015 report about drug use on our nation’s roadways.

Drug Impaired Driving: A Guide for States, equips states and policymakers with the latest research, data, laws and programs to help them address this growing problem. This new edition includes recent data on drug use by drivers and drug involvement in crashes, new state laws and programs, and information from more than 30 additional research studies.

Chief among the report’s recommendations is increased training for law enforcement officers to help them identify and arrest drugged drivers. To address this need, Responsibility.org is providing $100,000 in funding to the Illinois, Montana, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin highway safety offices. Each office will use their funding to implement Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) training and Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) programs.
