take drug driving off the road
Some road users may feel capable driving after taking drugs. However, drug-driving affects every individual differently that the moment someone takes drugs and sits in the driver’s seat, they have no control of what will happen next.
Drug driving is a serious road safety issue with one in four Victorians who take drugs admit to driving under the influence of recreational drugs. This not only puts them at risk – but every road user at risk of serious road trauma.
Working with Victoria Police, Crime Stoppers is asking road users to ‘take the driver’s seat’ and report drug-driving information.
During this difficult time, we understand that everyone just wants their loved ones to be safe. It’s more important than ever to be cautious on the road and report drug-driving behaviour to Crime Stoppers.
Depending on the intake and combination of drugs, individuals who take drugs may experience delayed reaction times and reduced coordination whilst driving, making it extremely dangerous for everyone on the road.
Crime Stoppers have informative toolkits to help road users understand the dangers of drug driving and refamiliarise themselves with Victoria’s road rules to ensure everyone practices safe driving.
‘Take Drug Driving off the Road’ is a road safety guide on how to detect and report drug-driving on Victorian roads.
If someone is driving dangerously call Victoria Police on 000 immediately.
