CDOT raises awareness about cannabis-impaired driving

Traffic Safety Pulse News

As thousands of people descended upon Denver’s Civic Center Park last month to celebrate 420, the Colorado Department of Transportation was among the crowd to educate attendees about the risks of driving high.

Through a series of Trivial Pursuit-style quizzes and contests, CDOT engaged attendees with the goal of convincing them to stay off the road when they’ve been consuming cannabis. Participants were given the chance to win rideshare credits for correctly answering questions about cannabis history, DUI laws and the physiological effects of cannabis on driving.

The Mile High 420 Festival is the largest gathering of cannabis consumers in Colorado, and CDOT has participated in the event since 2016. Read the full release here.
