If you look at the stats for 2016, you’ll find that 765 crashes happened that involved drug-impaired drivers, across the state. These accidents injured 545 people and took 40 lives.
It’s true that the amount of crashes in 2016 was slightly down from 2015, but it was still up from 2010 or 2014, and it shows a consistent pattern of at least seven years in a row with more than 700 of these accidents.
To combat this, Utah has set up the Use Only As Directed Campaign.
Do not assume that having a prescription for your drugs, no matter how legal it is, means you can always drive after using them and avoid charges. Still, if you are arrested and charged, be sure that you understand your rights and defense options.
