Impaired driving is both public safety and public health concern in the United States. Obtaining accurate data about DUID problem is difficult due to a lack of consistent testing, no centralized reporting and emergence of new drugs and adulterants in the drug supply. The CFSRE is collaborating with forensic toxicology testing laboratories and the Regional Toxicology Liaison (RTL) program to evaluate impaired driving trends and provide resources to laboratories.


When: December 12th - December 14th, 2023 from 11am - 5pm ET each day
