Fighting for Victims of Drowsy Drivers
Fatigued driving, or drowsy driving, is a much bigger and more dangerous problem than many people realize. In fact, it is estimated that an alarming 1 in 25 drivers over the age of 18 have reported that they have fallen asleep behind the wheel in the past month. According to the NHTSA, drowsy driving causes approximately 72,000 collisions each year, injuring tens of thousands and causing several hundred deaths.
Driving while sleepy increases the risk of:
- Falling asleep behind the wheel
- Drifting among lanes of traffic
- Delayed reaction time
- Colliding with pedestrians or moving or parked vehicles
