Driving after drugs is a terrible idea, and we’ve got facts that’ll show you why. Later today: our 1st #TrueFactsTuesday
We sometimes hear people saying that cannabis makes you a more cautious driver, and that a reduction in speed is all that's needed to counteract cannabis impairment.

The only solution is to crash out instead, or to #DriveDrugFree

With all of the Dope as Drive events wrapped for the year we've drawn our winner of the iPhone 6 and want to say a big congrats to Ally Fergusson who nabbed the prize!
Wishing everyone a chilled out holiday. Stay safe out there.
Car crashes happen very suddenly and unexpectedly. A slowed reaction time means you are much less likely to see a crash coming in time to avoid it. So you're definitely better to #DriveDrugFree
