Stay awake at the wheel: your life depends on it

January 8, 2013

During the holidays there’s a lot of talk about drinking and driving.
But another less discussed cause of serious accidents and fatalities on the road involves people who are driving fatigued and fall asleep at the wheel.
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.
