Drugged driving is impaired driving.
Drugs impair many bodily functions that are necessary to operate a motor vehicle. Reaction time, perception and physical coordination are all dramatically affected. And the consequences are incredibly dangerous. The best way to reduce injury, death and other repercussions is to avoid driving after consuming mind-altering drugs.
Due to the deadly risks of drugged driving, Oklahoma has a Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUI-D) per se law. This law prohibits you from operating a motor vehicle in the State of Oklahoma with any amount of any Schedule I substance in your body.
Additionally, Oklahoma law prohibits you from jeopardizing our roads by operating a motor vehicle under the influence of “other intoxicating substances.” These substances include prescription, over-the-counter or illicit drugs that can adversely affect sensory or motor functions.
