Lyft Helping US State With DUIs Involving Pot

Over the past month, the ride-sharing service Lyft and the Colorado Department of Transportation have teamed up to warn folks of the dangers of driving after smoking pot. According to the CDOT, seventeen percent of all driving under the influence arrests in Colorado in 2016 involved marijuana. Sam Cole, a safety communications manager at CDOT, says, “Most marijuana users think it’s safe to drive high. But it impairs perception of time, distance and speed. And it also impairs your reaction time.” Meanwhile, Gabe Cohen, Lyft’s Colorado general manager, says, “Clearly a lot of people use Lyft when they’re drinking and we think they should do the same thing around marijuana.”
