DRUGS - A RISING TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT DILEMMA

While recognizing that tranquilizers are an extremely useful medical tool in the treatment of emotionally and mentally disturbed persons, the author questions the advisability of allowing persons receiving this medication to operate a motor vehicle. The physical effects that tranquilizing drugs produce are outlined, and the potential dangers of these effects are discussed. The author suggests that either new and less potent drugs be used treat these persons or that their driving privilege be revoked while they are under these medications.
