Talking Dangers of Driving High or Drunk

New AAA research that found people who drink and get high are more likely to speed, text, intentionally run red lights, and drive aggressively than those who don't. Compared to alcohol-only users, drivers who admitted to using both drugs were more likely to report such behavior as, speeding on residential streets, aggressive driving, intentional red-light running and texting while driving. Previous AAA research also suggests that users who drive high are at least twice as likely to be involved in a crash.
