Samenvatting This study includes a survey of 1000 drivers aged 17-39 years to establish the prevalence of illicit drug use and driving. Cannabis was the main illicit drug used. A group of problem drug users was also recruited via the Drug Outcome Research in Scotland project. Drug use among older adults was also examined. The purpose of the study is to find information that can be used to build campaigns to inform the public and deter drivers from driving while impaired in this way. It is expected that the proportion of drivers driving while impaired will have increased since the previous survey in 2000, when the rate was 1 in 20 drivers, in response to the general increase in drug use, increasing car ownership and use among young adults, increasing acceptance of cannabis use, and an increase in traffic violations by women.
