In a sleep-deprived country like ours, you can bet there are plenty of people driving who shouldn’t be.
Fatigue behind the wheel can also cause delayed reactions and poor judgment calls, such as overlooking a stop sign or a red light, or drivers not realizing they have drifted into oncoming traffic.
