Of cases monitored in 2020, 89% of cases did not involve the use of a known substance, other than alcohol. Based on recent study by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 2 conducted during the 2020 pandemic, roughly 65% of those involved in a serious or fatal crash tested positive for at least one active drug (alcohol, cannabis or opioids). This percentage represents an increase in both opioid and cannabis use compared to data 6 months prior to the pandemic. MADD Loudoun will continue to monitor all impaired driving charges; including drugged driving to see how changing events and laws have an effect on sentencing and proportion of drugged driving cases in the County. 2.
