AAA Offers Tool to Measure Impact of Legal Drugs on Driving

A new online tool is available for drivers who want to measure how prescription drugs affect their driving ability.

Roadwise Rx is the online program which outlines the effects of legal drugs and how they impact behind-the-wheel capabilities.

A release from AAA states that some antidepressants can increase the risk of a crash by up to 41 percent.

"With the recent publicity about Oklahoma's growing prescription drug problem, it's more important than ever for drivers to be aware of the impact of legal drugs," said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma.

"And it's not just older drivers, it's for motorists of all ages," Mai said.

Roadwise Rx will be available for free online at the bottom of the home page as well as at
