National Drugged Driving Reporting System (DDRS)

AHP, in collaboration with Carnevale Associates, received both Phase I and II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to develop and support the National Drugged Driving Reporting System (DDRS). The project was initiated because current enforcement approaches—developed originally to reduce drunk driving—are not adequate for dealing with the problem of drugged driving. In addition, there is not enough data collected about drugged driving at the local, state, or national level to inform policy and programs fully.  
 
The DDRS team worked with an expert panel of nationally recognized researchers to agree upon a National Minimum Data Set (NMDS) on Drugged Driving to meet the government’s need for data and to understand the magnitude of the problem of drugged driving, as well as identify possible public health prevention strategies. Based on this work, AHP designed the Drugged Driving Survey, an anonymous online survey designed to collect data elements outlined in the NMDS.
 
The DDRS team is partnering with up to three states to collect data on drugged driving. Each state recruits participants through their state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The DDRS team assists with implementation of data collection strategies. After the field test with the initial three states, data collection will expand into other states.
