Drowsy driving, or sleepiness, has been identified as a factor in a growing number of automobile crashes. As with the dangers of speeding, drinking and driving, and not wearing seatbelts, drowsy driving is just as devastating and dangerous.
Drowsy driving has serious consequences on our highways. It impairs driver’s reaction time, judgment, vision, awareness of surroundings and decision making. Warnings signs include: trouble keeping your eyes open and head up, difficulty focusing, yawning repeatedly, and missing exits or traffic signs.
