​​A trooper talking with a man during a traffic stopWhat do you think of when you hear the phrase “driving while intoxicated?” You probably get a vision of someone having a few too many drinks at a bar or party and getting behind the wheel – often with disastrous and even deadly consequences. But alcohol isn’t the only substance that can intoxicate a person, and the presence of those other substances may not be as obvious, especially to the untrained eye.
