Given the devastating consequences associated with fatal crashes, it is imperative to address this drug trend. Dr. Finley’s session, titled, “Exploring Washington State’s Traffic Safety Culture About Driving Under the Influence of Cannabis and Alcohol,” will highlight a project to understand the driving culture in Washington State and shares how the state is making data-driven decisions to change behavior.
