Did you know that after 21 hours without sleep, a driver is as effective as a drunk driver?
People think it won’t happen to them, but ‘drowsy drivers’ are 3.5 times more likely to crash, and often do. One recent study from the AAA Foundation For Traffic Safety concluded that 6% of motor vehicle crashes involved a drowsy driver. Their data suggests approximately 328,000 such crashes occur annually. The same study showed drowsy driving was a factor in 21% of crashes in which someone was killed.
