Can you Spot the Difference?
Driving drunk or high is driving impaired. Whether you’re caught driving drunk or high, you will face the same consequences.
Impaired Driving FactsIn 2015, nearly half of all 24 hour licence suspensions in Alberta were due to drug impairment.
Across Canada, the Traffic Injury Research Foundation found that 40 per cent of drivers who died during 2012 tested positive for drugs.
A study by the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, reports that cannabis creates performance deficits in many skills required to drive safely, such as tracking, reaction time, and concentration.
Studies of driving performance (both simulated and on-road) show increased likelihood to swerve, following distance, and speed as a function of cannabis use. Alberta is slightly above the national average for drugged driving at 41 per cent. 82 drivers killed in collisions during 2012 tested positive for drugs.
There is a common misunderstanding that driving after using cannabis is safer than driving after consuming alcohol.
Another misconception is about the police’s ability to detect impairment for drug use. Our goal is to debunk the myths around drug impaired driving.
Consequences of Drug Impaired Driving
Driving while impaired by drugs and refusing to comply with a demand for physical sobriety tests or to provide bodily fluid samples is a criminal offence.
Drivers who are pulled over on suspicion of drug impairment may be asked to complete a Standardized Field Sobriety Test, which checks for divided attention impairment. This test gives an officer reasonable and probable grounds to then ask for a drug recognition investigation.
