Methodology developed in our laboratories for testing the interactive effects of ethanol and drugs on human psychomotor performance is discussed. An attempt has been made to relate the findings of our studies to the results of real-life impairment, particularly in traffic crashes. Proposals for more comprehensive testing of drug-ethanol interactions have been put forward which may increase the predictive value of such tests.
