A medical marijuana prescription does not shield California drivers from arrest for driving under the influence. For purposes of determining whether a driver is impaired, medical marijuana is treated the same as alcohol. According to Commander Chris Tennant of the Pullman, Washington Police Department who is quoted in a February 17, 2015 USA Today article as saying, “If we suspect that they are intoxicated (with marijuana) and driving, then we handle it like we would alcohol where we put you through field sobriety tests.”
Halloween is a night full of fun for trick-or-treaters. Keep an eye out for little ones in costume and pay extra attention to pedestrians, as they may be unaware of their surroundings or have difficulty seeing through costumes and masks. Trick-or-treaters – especially small children – can seem to appear out of nowhere; drive extra cautiously.
Please help support Mothers Against Drunk Driving in their mission to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking. MADD is a terrific organization and worthy of our support. There are 2 opportunitites coming up where San Diegans can show their support for MADD.
You may have seen the TV ads that state “buzzed driving is drunk driving.” Now, NBC 7 San Diego reports that a new study on traffic accidents by UCSD shows even “minimally buzzed” drivers – those with a very low 0.01% blood-alcohol level – often cause fatal car accidents.
In California, the legal blood-alcohol limit maybe 0.08 percent, but no amount of alcohol is safe for driving, according to a UCSD study led by sociologist David Phillips and published in the journal Addiction. The study found that blood-alcohol levels well below the legal limit are associated with severe injury and even death.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently reported fatalities on US highways declined by over 1,000 people over the past year. Total fatal accidents for 2010 are expected to be 32,788, down from 33,808 in 2009. This is the lowest since 1949.
