NTSB calls for standard roadside drug test for drivers

The National Transportation Safety Board has asked the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to encourage the development of a standardized roadside test that police officers in South Carolina and around the country can use to determine if drivers are impaired by drugs. The NTSB says that the lack of such a test is one of the reasons drug-impaired driving is surging in the United States. Other factors include a deepening opioid crisis and more liberal marijuana laws.

The rise in large truck traffic deaths

South Carolina motorists who are concerned about road safety should know that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released data that shows the number of 2017 fatalities involving large trucks, or vehicles that have a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 10,000 pounds, rose by 9 percent. In comparison, the overall number of road fatalities fell by 1.8 percent during the same time period.
