Drugs are the number one cause of traffic fatalities in the U.S. According to a new survey by the nonprofit organization Drug Policy Alliance, drugs are the leading cause of road deaths and injuries.
Driving is one of the biggest killers of Americans.
There are now more people in the United States dying on the road than in any other place on Earth.
But a growing body of research suggests that the drugs involved in driving aren’t the cause.
According the Drug Policy Advocacy group, the drugs behind the traffic deaths aren’t driving, but rather people who are intoxicated and under the influence of drugs.
This includes alcohol and illicit drugs.
“It’s an issue of safety,” said Paul Armentano, the organization’s president and CEO.
“When you add to the issue the fact that many of these people are under the age of 21, that is the most dangerous driving situation we’ve ever had.”
The survey was conducted by the Drug Law Reform Coalition (DLRC), a group of civil society groups that advocates for criminal justice reform, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
In addition to the drug-related deaths, the group also looked at the injury and death toll from traffic accidents.
The group found that the number of people killed in traffic accidents jumped from 6,700 in 1990 to 21,900 in 2011.
The increase in deaths was not due to increased alcohol consumption or drugs, the study found.
Instead, the number jumped because more people were driving and getting behind the wheel.
The problem with driving while under the effect of a drug is that it’s extremely dangerous, Armentaro said.
A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that drivers under the drug influence are about twice as likely to be involved in an accident than drivers who were sober.
There is a long-standing debate over the amount of alcohol that can be safely consumed in the car, and how much is safe for the driver and the environment.
For instance, in the 1970s, the federal government began requiring a 0.25 percent alcohol content limit in all vehicles.
The federal government now allows up to 0.3 percent alcohol in all of its vehicles, and that’s in addition to most commercial alcohol sold at licensed liquor stores.
But alcohol in many types of vehicles, including cars, trucks and SUVs, can contain more than 0.1 percent alcohol.
The U.C.L.A. Institute of Transportation Engineers says that the new NIDA study shows that it is the amount that is most dangerous when it comes down to the amount being consumed, not the level of intoxication.
That said, the NIDA report also found that while people who drink alcohol are at increased risk for serious injuries and deaths, those who drive sober are much less likely to crash.
“People are being driven drunk and the risk of serious injury or death is much less,” Armentato said.
The new NDA report also showed that drivers over the age 25 were four times more likely to die in a car accident than those under the legal drinking age of 18.
And for those drivers who are under 21, the risk was three times greater than for those who are 18 to 24.
A recent National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) study found that in 2010, about 9.1 million people died on the roads.
Of those, about 3.4 million were pedestrians.
In 2012, more than 9.5 million people were killed on U.R.I. roadways, the government’s national highway safety database.
The number of fatal crashes on U, I and RI roads increased slightly in 2013 and 2014, but remained steady or even declined slightly from the year before.
“We know that it was a pretty steep increase in crashes that year,” Armentsano said.
“But in terms of the number, we know that in the past three years, it has been declining.
We have seen a gradual recovery.”
Armentao said the group’s goal is to change that.
“The public is waking up,” he said.
That means changing how they consume alcohol, and making sure that they know the risks associated with that consumption.
“That is where the future is going to be.”
