Drowsy Drivers Are Dangerous on Roadways

Research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that in the past month more than one in four motorists reported being so tired that they had a hard time staying awake while driving.

Peter Krissinger, president and CEO of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, stated that driving while drowsy is dangerous as it slows down reaction time. Consider the dangers when you attempt to push yourself driving to the limits.

An estimated 17 percent of fatal crashes and 13 percent of crashes involving hospitalization involve a tired driver.

If you experience yourself having disconnected or wandering thoughts, having difficulty focusing or keeping your eyes open, drifting out of your lane, missing traffic signs or yawning repeatedly, stop driving and pull over.
