Driving Drowsy is Dangerous
According to an NHTSA’s National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Study (NMVCCS) study, drowsy drivers are twice as likely to be involved in an accident than other drivers and are involved in more than 100,000 police-reported car crashes each year. Driving while fatigued compromises attention, alertness, judgment, and decision-making abilities – all of which are essential to the safe operation of a motor vehicle.
Sadly, the injuries resulting from a car accident can be catastrophic and even fatal. Some of the injuries that can result from a car accident caused by a drowsy driver include:
In severe cases, driving while fatigued can lead to a driver falling asleep behind the wheel. According to the National Sleep Foundation, a staggering 37 percent of drivers have actually fallen asleep while driving, with 13 percent saying that it occurs at least once a month. Fatigued driving is responsible for an estimated 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries, and $12.5 billion in monetary losses.
