How about drugs and driving?

A person does not have to be drinking to be arrested for driving under the influence. Drivers can be arrested for DUI with a blood alcohol concentration of 0% if there is proof that the impairment is due to drug use. Driving after using drugs appears to be more common among young drivers (13% for those 16 to 20 years old) than older drivers (5% for those 21 and older).
