CCSA’s Focus on Impaired Driving
Impaired driving is one of the most common factors contributing to serious road crashes in Canada. From 2000 to 2014, over 12,000 people are estimated to have died in crashes involving an alcohol-impaired driver. Drug-impaired driving is also a concern. According to a cannabis use and driving report, from 2000 to 2010, 16.6% of fatally injured drivers in Canada tested positive for cannabis. To help address impaired driving, CCSA conducts research, develops tools and resources, and produces targeted materials to support evidence-based decisions and public policy.
