You Can't Drive Safely If You're Impaired
That’s why it’s illegal everywhere in the United States to drive while under the influence of alcohol, illicit drugs or even drugs prescribed by your doctor if misused. While they all carry the same severe penalties, different substances can affect you in different ways.
Alcohol, marijuana and other drugs:
Decrease coordination, judgment and reaction times
Cocaine and methamphetamine:
Can make you more aggressive and reckless
Two or more drugs combined (including alcohol):
Can amplify the impairing effects of each drug
Some prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs:
Can cause extreme drowsiness, dizziness and other side effects
