Whether by drugs or alcohol, impaired driving is impaired driving.
Drugs affect the cognitive and motor abilities necessary to safely operate a motor vehicle and significantly increase the risk of a collision.
Although the effects of cannabis impairment can be less visible than alcohol, they are every bit impairing in their own way. Some people believe that using cannabis makes them better drivers, but evidence shows that it impairs driving ability. These misconceptions can result in poor driving decisions that put the health and safety of everyone at risk.
