As More States Get Legal Pot, Americans Hazy On Drugged Driving
Page (1) of 1 - 12/29/14||
|U.S. drivers are a lot hazier about pot impairment—as well as the consequences and impairments that result from prescription medications and painkillers. In a recent AAA survey, while 66 percent said that people driving after drinking pose a very serious threat to safety, only 56 percent attached that threat level to illegal drugs in general and just 28 percent to prescription drugs. And Americans aren’t clear on what the impairment thresholds are for marijuana, or on the legal and safety issues. These findings come ahead of the full 2015 Traffic Culture Index report, to be released next month from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.
