Wundersitz, L, Konstad, A

Drug/Drunk Driving

ARSC conference 2017

This study uses a wide range of data sources to provide an overview of current trends in drug use and drug driving in South Australia. We investigate the incidence of drug use within the general population, examine drug detection rates for roadside drug testing and analyse the prevalence of drugs in crashes. The analysis indicates that the increasing prevalence of driving under the influence of drugs, particularly methamphetamine, appears to reflect general drug use trends observed in the wider community.
