Impaired driving continues to be a prevalent behavior on our roadways, costing the lives of people and creating unique challenges for law enforcement. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM Eastern that will present the societal perceptions of impaired driving and law enforcement, as well as discordance between attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors. Presenters will dive into unique challenges faced by law enforcement and current tools and strategies used to address impaired driving.

This is the second of three webinars in a series on how the impaired driving paradigm is changing. The first webinar in the series, Safe System Approach to Substance Abuse, was held on Tuesday, September 12, 2023.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Impairment in Transportation.
