The Role of Drugs in Road Crashes

International Transport Forum

The studies reviewed in this chapter attempt to establish the contributory role of drugs to crashes and/or the risks associated with driving after using drugs. Studies include casecontrol studies, in which the incidence of drug use is compared between drivers who are or are not involved in crashes, and crash responsibility/culpability studies, in which the incidence of drug use is compared between drivers who are and are not responsible/culpable for the crashes in which they are involved.
