Safety

Uncomfortable High

Choose to never drive high

Would you drive high if your kids were in the car? Of course not. What if you're the only one in the car? Do the lives of pedestrians or other drivers matter? CDOT is urging Coloradans to shift their perspective when it comes to cannabis-impaired driving. Drivers continue to get behind the wheel after consuming cannabis, with many heavy users saying they do so on a regular basis. This should make us all uncomfortable given the fact that cannabis impairs the critical abilities needed to drive safely. Through research-based awareness and education, CDOT aims to change the norms around driving high, reducing the number of cannabis-impaired crashes and deaths on Colorado roads.
