DRUG RESEARCH METHODOLOGY. VOLUME II. THE IDENTIFICATION OF DRUGS OF INTEREST IN HIGHWAY SAFETY

The report presents findings of a workshop on the identification of drugs that should be the focus of near-term highway safety research. Drugs of interest are those that have a potential to increase the likelihood of traffic crashes and their attendant losses. This report summarizes efforts by a cross-disciplinary panel of experts (1) to develop a procedure by which to estimate the risk potential of drugs; and (2) to produce an initial rank ordering of identified drugs of interest, based on subjective estimates of their risk potential. Criteria of risk that describe a drug's user population, its pattern of use, and its effects related to driving are outlined. A list of drugs of interest ranked by the procedure developed in this workshop is included.
