Breakout Session

Impaired Driving – You Don’t Need to Break the Law to be Impaired

The statistics are sobering, drink driving is a factor in 18-20% of all fatal accidents in NSW and it’s estimated that illegal drugs are present in around the same numbers. What might surprise you is fatigue accounts for more than 20-30% of all fatal crashes and severe injuries.

A driver who has been awake for over 17-19 hours has the same driving ability as an individual with a blood-alcohol level of 0.05% and therefore double the risk of having an accident.

The cost of road incidents in Australia is an estimated $27 billion per annum. Of this, fatigue related road incidents cost workers, families and the Australian economy $3 billion each year.

Whether you’re using over the counter or prescription drugs, or simply fatigued, impairment increases your risk of being involved in a serious and potentially fatal road incident.

During this session we’ll explore some of the statistics and then participate in a hands-on workshop where we’ll get to feel the effects of impairment derived from the use of prescription drugs, fatigue, alcohol and illegal drugs.

This tactile experience is not to be missed!
