Drowsy Driving Prevention Week
Drowsey Driving Prevention Week takes place during the month of November. We all know that drinking and driving or texting and driving can result in fatalities, but what about driving while tired? You might be surprised to learn that drowsy driving is the cause of 20 percent of all motor-vehicle crashes each year, according to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF). In fact, each year in the United States more than 6,400 deaths and 50,000 serious injuries result from drowsy drivers.
What better time to talk about the dangers of sleepy drivers than during Drowsy Driving Prevention Week as the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) aims to raise awareness of the dangers of driving while sleep-deprived, and to ultimately minimize sleep-deprived driving.
