Driving while impaired by drugs has become comparable in seriousness to alcohol-impaired driving. CCSA’s Drug-Impaired Driving Toolkit contains timely and important resources for new drivers and those involved in drivers’ education.
One area of particular concern is the prevalence of driving after drug use among new and young drivers. CCSA reviewed current driving-related materials and identified a critical gap in information on drugs and driving. This toolkit was developed to address this issue. The toolkit includes content on:
The effects of different types of drugs on the body and driving;
The ability of law enforcement to detect drug-impaired drivers and take corresponding legal action;
The dangers of drug-impaired driving for young and new drivers.
It also includes impaired driving key messages for people living in rural and remote areas. These messages are informed by discussions with the governments of the Yukon and Northwest Territories.
