Drugs and Driving

Drugs and Driving is a collaborative project led by the Centre for Addictions Research of BC (University of Victoria) and 7th Floor Media (Simon Fraser University). The project is designed to promote literacy about the impact of alcohol and other drugs on driving and to engage young people in creating healthy communities. The project partners include BC Ministry of Health, BCAA Road Safety Foundation, Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, and ICBC. The specific objectives are:

1) To raise the awareness of young drivers about substance impaired driving,

2) To promote a broad social ownership of the problem among the general population, and

3) To cultivate social support for young drivers that supports positive behaviour.

The program involves the website with interactive learning activities, a learning resource to support classroom activities in Planning 10 and a guide to support complementary activities in the community.
