Dangers of “Drowsy Driving”

As reported by 9News, the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) estimates that more than 100,000 vehicular crashes are caused by fatigue each year, resulting in an estimated 1,500 deaths per year.

The story reports that a recent Australian study found that drivers who hadn’t slept within 24 hours performed, on the average, with an impairment rating equal to a drunk driver with a blood alcohol level above Colorado’s per se limit for driving while intoxicated.

According to a 2002 poll by the NSF, adults between the ages of 18-29 are more likely to drive while drowsy and men are almost twice as likely as women to fall asleep while driving.
