23rd International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety (ICADTS) Conference
August 28 - August 31
T2022 will bring together experts in alcohol, drugs and traffic safety who operate in the fields of law, law enforcement, toxicology, pharmacy, medicine, psychology, traffic safety, public health and administration. The goal of the meeting is to develop a better understanding of the current problems with identifying, educating and prosecuting drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs (licit or illicit) and to evaluate strategies to reduce driving under the influence. Identification of psychoactive substances in motor vehicle crashes relies on complementary evidence from experimental and epidemiological research. The role of experimentation is to document the nature and extent of impairment produced by specific dosages and concentrations of particular drugs. The role of epidemiological studies is to determine the extent to which drugs contribute to motor vehicle collisions. Current and future challenges of experimental and epidemiological researchers include the identification and evaluation of hundreds of novel psychoactive substances (NPS) that have entered the (illicit) drug market as well as the classification of impairing properties of new generations of medicinal drugs to treat CNS disorders.
