Injury Prevention

Getting high and using a snowmobile or a Honda outside of town or out on the land is also risky. When you’re driving high, you might not notice thin ice under your snowmobile or a rock or mound of snow that could flip your Honda. When you’re in your community or out on the land, it doesn’t make sense to drink alcohol and drive.

Driving when you’re high doesn’t make sense either. To find out more about driving high visit:  www.potanddriving.cpha.ca | Inuktitut version

As well Inuit Tuttarvingat has produced the following projects and materials on injury prevention:
