Driving safely is a complex skill which requires the driver to divide their attention simultaneously across several competing cognitive demands, relying on visual accuracy, rapid decision making, planning, tracking, vigilance, reaction time, coordination and gross motor activity. While it is commonly known that drug driving is a serious road safety issue, many prescription drugs can impair these skills and adversely affect your driving ability. Prescription drugs have major impacts on your concentration, mood, coordination and reaction time, creating impairments which increase your crash risk and put you and others on the road at risk.
