Don’t Drive High Drug-impaired driving among teens is a major concern. Following the recent legalization of cannabis, priority should be placed on talking to teens about the seriousness of impaired driving. Janice Sawbridge Community Safety Officer, Renfrew OPP reports “The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is committed to ensuring Ontario’s roads are safe from drug-impaired and alcohol-impaired drivers. We know that 21% of fatally injured teen drivers tested positive for cannabis. These deaths were tragic and preventable. The OPP will continue to educate people and enforce impaired driving laws in our efforts to save lives and make our roads safer. Do your part by always driving sober.”
