In case you were too drowsy last week and missed it (yes, pun intended), last week was SADD’s “Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. It is estimated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that 100,000 reported crashes each year are caused primarily by drowsy driving and that such crashes result in more than 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries. Also, according to National Sleep Foundation surveys, half of American adults consistently report that they have driven drowsy and about 20% admit that they have actually fallen asleep at the wheel in the previous year.
