National Drug-Impaired Driving Initiative

Public Awareness to Drive Individual Action

NHTSA’s mission includes educating people about unsafe driving behaviors, including broadening understanding that drug-impaired driving is illegal and dangerous.

Going forward, NHTSA will:

Work with its partners to develop robust and effective public education tools and campaigns, including an advertising campaign that focuses on the message that impaired driving includes both alcohol and drugs.

Pilot-test a training course for prosecutors and toxicologists to help them understand each other’s roles and how to work together when presenting evidence in court; and

Launch an online introductory training course to help highway safety professionals understand drug-impaired driving and how it differs from alcohol-impaired driving.

Develop guidance to help States strengthen their foundation for drug-impaired driving programs, including potential legislative changes to test, track and inform enforcement and prevention efforts.
