Driving has suddenly become a different experience than it has historically been. 'Road Rage' could have never been conceived by Henry Ford. Today, you never know when the person you are next to could take their anger at the world out on you or your car. Some may consider this a stretch, but could these occurrences by a byproduct of drugged driving?
When people think of drugged driving, they typically think of marijuana or some narcotic. However, drugged driving could be the result of other factors. Many drivers consume enormous amounts of caffeinated beverages—the effects of this on a person's heart and blood can agitate a person as seriously as other drugs (and far more for many people). When you combine these instances with the traditional cases of drugged driving, it is not too far of a leap to see that how people react on the road can be a direct result of drugged driving.
*Think about how all substances you consume affect you before getting in your car. Even substances that seem harmless can have dramatic effects.
