Although a DUI is often associated with drunk driving, DUI means driving under the influence, whether it is through alcohol or drugs. There are often campaigns to raise awareness to stop drunk driving, but “drugged driving” inherits similar dangers. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 16 percent of drives during weekend, nighttime are tested positive for either illegal, prescription, or over the counter medications, and 11 percent are positive for illicit drugs. Furthermore, 18 percent of the drivers in fatal accidents are tested positive for one or more drug, legal or illegal. As a result, there needs to be an increase in public dialogue about “drugged driving”. And if you have loved ones who are abusing drugs, encourage them to receive treatments.
