Driving Under The Influence of Drugs

Sleeping and driving do not mix.

When you are behind the wheel of a car, being fatigued is dangerous.

Drivers who are tired have slower reaction times, decreased awareness, and impaired judgment. As with drugs and alcohol, drowsiness can contribute to a traffic crash.

For this reason, don’t drive under the influence of drugs:

*Read the medical advice on the bottle or packet, or consult your doctor before getting behind the wheel.
*Many medicinal drugs cause drowsiness or other side effects.
*Other side effects from medicinal drugs include loss of concentration, slower retain time , difficulty in measuring distance or speed.
* Anesthetic from surgery can also affect driving. Always arrange someone to collect you from the hospital.
