Take a Break. Drive Awake.
Drowsy driving is a dangerous behavior that can result in serious injury or death. But despite the risks, drowsy driving is far too prevalent.
Drowsy driving is estimated to contribute to as many as 1.2 million collisions, resulting in potentially 5,000 to 8,000 fatalities per year.
According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety 2015 Traffic Safety Culture Index, 1 in 3 drivers (31.5%) admitted to driving within the prior 30 days when they were so tired that they had trouble keeping their eyes open.
