Road Safety Authority Anti Drug Driving Campaign
Campaign tackles cannabis
The Road Safety Authority (RSA) launched the third in its series of Anti Drug Driving Campaigns on Friday 7th October 2011. This new campaign is aimed at raising awareness of the dangers and possible consequences of driving under the influence of cannabis, the most commonly used illegal drug.
New research commissioned by the RSA has revealed alarming misconceptions around driving under the influence of drugs, and even more alarming behaviour. Scientific evidence has proven that cannabis impairs driving ability and increases a driverís risk of being involved in a car crash. Cannabis users are 3 times more at risk of being involved in a road collision than a non cannabis user.
Visit RSA website to read the research and view the ad campaign.
