Drinking and Drugged Driving
Research finds that for every employee in the U.S. who reports having consumed alcohol just before coming to work, 3 1/2 times as many report having taken illegal drugs just before going to their job. Therefore, it appears that driving while impaired by illegal drugs may be a much more serious problem than generally known.
Driving either drugged or drunken are both serious crimes that need to be stopped. People killed by drugged drivers and drunken drivers are equally tragic deaths and we need to do more to prevent both.
