Each of these factors can have an impact on the results. For example, low testing rates among drivers killed and injured in crashes continue to plague the search for a valid estimate of the prevalence of drug use among crash-involved drivers.

This includes population-level data on drug and alcohol use (including data from the survey conducted as part of this project), self-report surveys in which drivers are asked to describe their own practices of driving after using drugs, roadside surveys in which objective measures of drug use are usually obtained from drivers, and studies that seek to measure the type and extent of drugs among drivers who come to the attention of authorities as a result of arrest or crash involvement.
