Academy launches impairment e-learning course.

24 June 2020

Story from Road Safety GB.

The Road Safety GB Academy has launched a new online e-learning course that deals with impairment by alcohol and drugs.

The Impairment E-learning Course provides road safety practitioners with an increased knowledge and awareness of how alcohol, cannabis and cocaine impact on road user behaviour – together with the legal implications of using such substances in the road safety context. 

The course has been developed based on feedback received from practitioners who have attended other Road Safety GB Academy courses and consists of three, 30-minute e-learning modules. 

The highly interactive modules, which participants can complete in their own time, will provide practitioners with an increased understanding of:

  • How these particular drugs impact on road user behaviour
  • Why the drugs have these effects
  • The legalities around alcohol and drugs
  • Possible countermeasures
