AAA Releases 2016 Report on Impaired Driving Annually, more than 30,000 Americans are killed on our nation’s roadways. One- third of those deaths are a direct result of someone driving impaired. Impaired driving involves much more than just alcohol. It includes illegal drugs such as heroin, meth and even “bath salts.” It also includes prescription drugs, which can be abused by those with a prescription or, frequently, those who steal or obtain them from others. And often, drugs are mixed with alcohol, which by itself remains a menacing problem.

Between 2007 and 2014, illicit drug


use by drivers has risen 25%; marijuana detection has increased nearly 50%. And this isn’t the kind of marijuana prevalent in the 1960s and ’70s: it’s much more concentrated and therefore stronger, and it comes in a variety of forms including wax, spice, concentrate, oils and vapor. Tis may be one reason why there have been 2.4 million new users of marijuana just in the past few years. “Tat increase is huge,” says Jake Nelson,


director of traffic safety advocacy and research for the American Automobile Association (AAA) in Washington, D.C. “It gives us a sense for how things are changing. And it matches what drug recognition evaluators around the country say: that they see a growing number of drivers impaired by drugs other than alcohol, marijuana in particular, and it will surpass the issues we have today with


alcohol-impaired driving.” Prescription medications are more frequently impairing drivers—knowingly and unknowingly. Tey might be taking one medication prescribed to them by their doctor, and then use an over-the-counter drug, which in combination can cause impairment. Or they might take an over-the counter medication such as one for allergies and then have an alcoholic beverage, the combination of which heightens the effects of each. Prescription drugs also are increasingly being used by teenagers to get high for the first time—every day about 2,000 of them do so nationally. Meanwhile, 46 people die every day in this country due to an overdose of prescription medication. Read the full report: “Bad Influence:
