Many of us are familiar with the dangers presented from the combination of alcohol with motor vehicle operation. The site DrugTreatment.Com, however, recently analyzed data compiled from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regarding car crashes caused by all substances, which revealed some noteworthy findings. While fatal car accidents caused by drug use are still a common occurrence, these crashes are less common than those involving drunk drivers. Also, when it comes to the issue of motorists who test positive for drugs, marijuana is the substance most often involved in deadly car crashes. Also, while many motorists might think that the substance would keep motorists alert, substances are the second most commonly involved substance. As a result, motorists should understand that next time they decide to drive home after drinking or taking drugs, even though a person might be sober, it still doesn’t mean that they are in a safe position to drive.
