The RCMP in Canada is reminding the public that driving under the influence of any mind-altering substance, drugs illegal or prescribed, or alcohol is illegal and dangerous.

In a recent case in Eastern Canada RCMP members observed an individual inhaling aerosol can vapours while behind the wheel of a car. When the RCMP approached him, the 53 year old was inebriated and incoherent. He was charged with having Care and Control of a Motor Vehicle while intoxicated by a drug.

That same evening in a nearby town the RCMP did a routine check on a parked car and smelled the strong smell of marijuana coming from the car. After dispatching a drug recognition expert to the scene the 19 year old driver was suspended for 7 days and charged.

Drugs are increasingly involved in car accidents. This accidents, and the resulting injuries and deaths, are completely avoidable.
