DRUG RESEARCH METHODOLOGY. VOLUME IV. EPIDEMIOLOGY IN DRUGS AND HIGHWAY SAFETY: THE STUDY OF DRUG USE AMONG DRIVERS AND ITS ROLE IN TRAFFIC CRASHES

The report presents the findings of a workshop on epidemiology in drugs and highway safety. A cross-disciplinary panel of experts (1) identified methodological issues and constraints present in research to define the nature and magnitude of the drug and driving problems; and (2) outlined approaches to the design and conduct of surveys to estimate the highway safety risk attributable to the use of drugs other than alcohol alone. Participants addressed specific topic areas in the context of two general issues -- (1) the sequence of research needed to establish drugs other than alcohol as a priority concern in highway safety; and (2) the relationship of data provided by different types of surveys and information required for policy decisions.
