 End Alcohol and Other Drug Impairment

End Alcohol and Other Drug Impairment graphic

Impairment is a contributing factor in far too many transportation accidents across all modes, with alcohol impairment as a leading cause of highway crashes. We want to continue to see states adopt per se BAC limits of 0.05 percent or below, as well as broaden their use of other effective countermeasures, like ignition interlock devices and high-visibility enforcement. Impairment in transportation is not limited to just alcohol; it also includes impairment by other drugs—legal or illicit. We want a national drug testing standard for passenger vehicles and stronger screening and toxicology testing in commercial transportation.
