Drug-impaired driving is dangerous and against the law

There's a lot going on around you when you drive. You need to be totally focussed so that if a split-second – and potentially life-saving – decision needs to be made, you're ready for it.

Drugs affect your ability to react and increase the chance of a crash. Don't get behind the wheel or get in a car with an impaired driver — it's just not worth the risk.

Drugs impair your ability to drive by affecting:

  • balance and coordination
  • motor skills
  • attention
  • judgment
  • reaction time
  • decision-making skills

I feel it is my obligation to keep you informed and up to date with our traffic laws and impaired driving.

Please don't drive High.
