The Dangers of Drug Driving

Infographic | Previous |
A new test known as the Drugalyser® is due to be introduced into police traffic proceedings in the coming year, to help police detect and tackle drug-driving offences at the roadside.

With this in mind, Evans Halshaw provides this guide to how different drugs can affect your driving ability - and why you shouldn't get behind the wheel if you're under the influence.

Cannabis can affect attention span and reaction times, as well as eye-tracking abilities, making drivers under the influence almost twice as likely to cause a road accident.

Cocaine can make the user feel more alert; however, accident levels prove they actually aren't. Speeding and aggressive driving are both typical of drivers under the influence of cocaine.

LSD distorts the senses, causing hallucinations and a feeling of detachment from reality. Symptoms can last up to 12 hours, while anxiety and flashbacks
can occur days and even weeks later.
